That’s what I like: Pop music financial advice

< Back to all articles

Pop stars and money have a long history together. From topping the charts to losing it all (looking at you MC Hammer) money—and how to spend it—is a key theme. 

In honour of the Grammy awards this weekend, we took one of the biggest hits of the year (and a nominee for the Song of the Year award) “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars and changed some of the lyrics around in a playful take of some financial considerations of our own.



Hey, hey, hey
Got a chunk of change in the bank

Got all that saving to thank

Go on tell me how to spend it

I’m all about that good credit

Go on explain it to me, tell tell it to me

Chequing and savings baby mortgages and loans baby

Financial advice is all I need

Don’t want to pay too many fees (nope)

Staying in for dinner

Gotta be a financial winner

You got it if you want it, got got it if you want it

Said you got it if you want it, take my wallet if you want it, now



Jump in the Corolla
(Girl, it’s got some miles on it)
Anything you want
(Just to put a smile on you)
You deserve it baby, you deserve it all
And I'm gonna give it to you



Retirement looking so bright
Strawberry champagne on ice
Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like
Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like

Golden years feeling all right

Glasses and hair that is white

Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like

Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like
