Betty (Get Money): the lyrics and their meaning

Betty (Get Money) is a song about Yung Gravy’s lifestyle and how money changed his life. He mentions how he won’t risk a loss any longer: the American rapper loves how his life is right now, and he wants to keep making money, enjoying the girls who spin around him, and maintaining this lifestyle. That’s exactly what he sings in the chorus:

Never take an L no more
Never take a damn thing slow
All I know is chase this dough and get money
Never gonna take no loss
Never gonna lose my sauce
All I know is chase this (Woah), and get money

The rapper also fills the lyrics with sexual allusions, which we avoid explaining explicitly. It’s fun to guess them autonomously with a smile on your face. For example:

Before I get the dough, I got the morning routine
Wake up bright and early, this some brand new cream
Floss three times, baby, I’m so clean

Getting at the bottom of the meaning of the lyrics, Betty (Get Money) is a celebration of Yung Gravy’s wealthy lifestyle and a promise that he will never risk it.

Who’s Betty in Yung Gravy’s song?

The person who hides behind the “Betty” title has been revealed directly by Yung Gravy before releasing the song: it refers to the actress Betty White, who died in December 2021. According to Yung Gravy, he used her name as a MILF name, as he did with many other songs

“With every project I’ve done, I’ve always had a continuing narrative with MILF names. This is like the eighth name. ‘Betty’ is a dope one. It’s inspired by Betty White, RIP. I reserved the title for one of my favorite songs.”

The complete lyrics

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
I’ll never let you down, baby
(It’s really Yung Gravy)
Uh, ayy

I’m with your baby mama at the crib, I blow her back out
Shawty Filipino and she call me Manny Pacquiao
Alley Oop without the hoop, they call me Jerry Stackhouse
Gazin’ out in public, but your mama made me snap out
Before I get the dough, I got the morning routine
Wake up bright and early, this some brand new cream
Floss three times, baby, I’m so clean
Gravy got cheese, now that’s poutine (Woah, baby)
Gravy come in hot likе I’m hoppin’ off the griddle
Pull up on the kid if you’re tryna get belittled
All the mamas love me, now I think I’m peanut brittle
Flex the rainbow, bangin’ like some Skittles

Gravy, why you out of pocket? (Out of pocket)
Stop it (No, no)
I’m gettin’ money, Gravy Crockett
Drop it

Never take an L no more
Never take a damn thing slow
All I know is chase this dough and get money (Get the money, get the money)
Never gonna take no loss
Never gonna lose my sauce
All I know is chase this (Woah), and get money (Gettin’ money, gettin’ money, gettin’ money)

Get money
Probably into the early morning
Or get money
Yeah, I live the fast life (Woah)

Yeah, you know I life the fast live
I don’t got a type, baby, I’m a cash type
Still gettin’ dividends from a past life
I’ll get your daddy’s net worth on a bad night
‘Cause I act right
Yeah, I’m rockin’ Rick, clappin’ Astleys like the 80s
Never give it up until the reaper come and slay me
Pull up with a Zelda and a Peach and a Daisy
I be dirty dancin’, now they yellin’ “Gravy Swayze”

Damn, Gravy, you so vicious (Ooh)
You so clean and so delicious (So delicious)
How come you ain’t got no missus?
Count the paper, count the riches

Never take an L no more
Never take a damn thing slow
All I know is chase this dough and get money (Get the money, get the money)
Never gonna take no loss
Never gonna lose my sauce
All I know is chase this (Woah), and get money (Gettin’ money, gettin’ money, gettin’ money)

Get money
Get money, Gravy gettin’ money
Or get money, woah
Get money
Get money, Gravy gettin’ money
Or get money, woah
