She was passing by
“money honey” is an urban slang for a “hot”* rich under 30 lady.
This “honey took his money” Sounds like she used him as a conquest, and passed on by…
It’s the start of his day, and he starts out with a promising hottie, but, then regrets it, ending with the refrain of the “moon got in my eye.”
