"Gold Diggin' Love" is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. It was intended to be on her debut album, Cry Baby, however, it was later scrapped.[1]

This song was performed at Melanie's show at Gramercy Theatre in New York City on February 15th, 2014.

Theme

This song is about a woman who is a gold digger, which is a person who engages in romantic relationships for money rather than love. She is trying to warn a man about how this woman is only dating him for his money.

She lists reasons as to how she is a gold digger and gives proof that she doesn't actually love him. However, he thinks that the woman is just joking and ignores her until he discovers that she was right all along. In the end, he is left heartbroken and without any money.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Empty your pockets, she'll give you all her love
Is that made of diamonds? If not, you're gettin' shelved
She'll hold you real tight, squeeze dollars out of you
Grab your wallet from your pocket and have fun with other dudes

[Pre-Chorus]
Uh-oh, should've hidden all your money
Uh-oh, she took it all from you
Uh-oh, you think I'm being funny?
Well, boy, she doesn't really love you

[Chorus]
Ooh-ooh, you will touch the sky
If she told you to really jump that high
You gave her all your lifelong love just to receive

[Post-Chorus]
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love, love

[Verse 2]
You tried to confront her on the cash that she spent
She gave you a kiss and that will pay the rent
How long will you hold on giving her your life?
She's killing you so fast, but with a golden knife

[Pre-Chorus]
Uh-oh, should've hidden all your money
Uh-oh, she took it all from you
Uh-oh, you think I'm being funny?
Well, boy, she doesn't really love you

[Chorus]
Ooh-ooh, you will touch the sky
If she told you to really jump that high
You gave her all your lifelong love just to receive

[Post-Chorus]
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love, love

[Bridge]
Now she's found another man
With more cash she can spend
She's swiped you to the end
Now you're left a broken mess
She left you in her debt
She never broke a sweat

[Chorus]
Ooh-ooh, you will touch the sky
If she told you to really jump that high
You gave her all your lifelong love just to receive

[Post-Chorus]
Her gold diggin' love
Her gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love, love

[Outro]
Gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love
Gold diggin' love, love
