Money is what was we share

We toss it around

And will not care

But we listen to hear the sound


Of jingling coins in our pocket

Always afraid to lose

So we lock it 

In a safe we choose


Some worthless some a fortune

It makes us go mad

Some even importuned

It’s really quite sad


To touch a bill

That may have been the president’s 

Of course we will all kill

For it, but now it has a new resident


Some save, others spend

Or leave it in our pocket

Then the one who always needs us to lend

But we’ve just made a deposit


Here’s an idea, get a loan

Goes to the casino, make a bet

Losing you’ve never outgrown

Crap, now you’re in debt


Gives us different jobs

Some give more than others

This is why we rob

Money is now our new lover

We are now starting to praise money more than we should, don't you think?
