The Apprentice Theme Song

2004-present; also the theme for The Celebrity Apprentice

Ah, the Donald. Also, Ivanka is quite hot, right?

The very apt theme song for The Apprentice—the one that goes “money, money, money” is officially entitled “For the Love of Money.” It was performed and recorded by Ohio-based, Philadelphia soul group The O’Jays. The song is originally part of their 1973 album Ship Ahoy.

The O’Jays still perform to this date, but they have lost some members and have gone through some lineup changes. As being not primarily songwriters (The O’Jays), “For the Love of Money” was written by songwriters and producers Gamble and Huff—composed of Kenneth Gamble and Leon A. Huff, and bass player Anthony Jackson.

Below is the theme song and an opening sequence from season two.

The Apprentice theme song lyrics (show edit)

Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
Some people got to have it
Some people really need it
Listen to me y’all
Do things, do things, do things, bad things with it
Dollar bills, y’all, come on
Lean, mean, mean green
Almighty dollar
Don’t you know that, money
Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
Money can drive some people out of their minds
Money money money money, money
Money money money money, money
