A Twenty Dollar Bill And Why lyrics
A Twenty Dollar Bill And Why
A twenty dollar bill! And why?
Upon what should we contemplate?
Allow me please to explicate:
What?s the meaning of this Gelt?
For peace sometimes, blood must be spilt.
For life, sometimes, a good man dies.
What means this money, Noah boychick?
You won?t learn this in Arithmetic!
Money follows certain laws,
it?s worth how much it?s worth because
somewhere, something?s valued less;
it?s how our blessings come, I guess.
Golden, shiny, but never pure.
Think from whence your riches stem.
Think of someone who is porr:
and know, you stole this gold from them.
Especially here in the Devil?s South!
You rip your gold from a starving man?s mouth!
Oh for pete?s sake dad!
Give him the money!
Say thank you, honey.
Stuart, play the clarinet!
A happy happy Chanukah night!
What a party, what a goose!
Fun, huh? Noah?
Oh what?s the use?
It?s cold tonight; my feet are numb;
I?m tired waiting for a bus that won?t come. Last Update: June, 10th 2013
