Wealthy – part 2/3

I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor: Rich is better. — Sophie Tucker

The Money Song (Monty Python) -Eric Idle & John Gould

PRESENTER:
I’ve got ninety thousand pounds in my pyjamas.
I’ve got forty thousand French francs in my fridge.
I’ve got lots of lovely lire.
Now the Deutschmark’s getting dearer,
And my dollar bills would buy the Brooklyn Bridge.

PRESENTER and CHORUS:
There is nothing quite as wonderful as money.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as cash.
Some people say it’s folly,
But I’d rather have the lolly.
With money you can make a splash.

PRESENTER:
There is nothing quite as wonderful as money.

CHORUS:
…Money, money, money, money.

PRESENTER:
There is nothing like a newly minted pound.

CHORUS:
…Money, money, money, money.

PRESENTER and CHORUS:
Everyone must hanker
For the butchness of a banker.
It’s accountancy that makes the world go ’round.

CHORUS:
‘Round, ’round, ’round.

PRESENTER:
You can keep your Marxist ways,
For it’s only just a phase,
For it’s money, money, money makes the world go ’round.

CHORUS:
…Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, moneeeeey!

Ah, what the hell.  It was better than some pompous rambling about the wealth of life with or without the moolah.
