It's All About the Money
by Cara Vida

Money flyingGoddamn --- It's all about the money
Old money, new money, easy money, hard-earned money, drug money, funny money, other people's money, laundered money --- blood money
Making a killing --- Follow the money --- Laughing and crying all the way to the bank--- Filing for Chapter Eleven
A penny saved is a penny earned
Spare change? Spare change?
Spending money like a drunken sailor
When it rains, you know it rains pennies from heaven
You can't take it with you
Money can't buy love, money can't buy happiness

Loots the root --- You better believe it --- Shit, it's all a crap shoot
Money is no object
Queer as a three dollar bill  --- You have been written out the will
The moon belongs to everyone --- The best things in life are free
Wanna bet? It's a lottery dream --- It's all about the green --- The do-re-mi baby
A mark, a buck, a yen or a pound is all that makes the world go round --- go round -- go round
Money doesn't grow on trees
On easy street

Throwing down good money after bad --- Ah, it's nothing but chump change
You get what you pay for
You'll find your fortune falling all over town, be sure that your umbrella is upside down
Saving for a rainy day --- Living beyond your means --- Fixed income --- Making ends meet --- Breaking even --- Coming up short --- Turning a profit --- In the black --- In the red
Time is money

Loads of insurance and your worth more dead
Poor as a church mouse and headed to the poor house
Cold, hard cash on the barrel head
Easy come, easy go
Yeah, he's loaded, rolling in dough
The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

You want to go out and have some fun
You gotta spend some cash
and let the good times roll
Take the money and run
Bad credit, no credit, double your money, robbing Peter to pay Paul
Winner takes all

In God we trust, the Midas touch
Spendthrift, penny pincher, tightwad, cheapskate, money grubber, fat cat, trust fund baby, filthy rich bitch
Love for sale, appetizing young love for sale...
Who's prepared to pay the price for a trip to paradise?
Appetizing young love for sale...

It's tax deductible
A fool and his money are soon parted
God will provide
Brother can you spend a dime?
I'm down on my luck, financially embarrassed, broke as fuck
You look like a million bucks

Make quick money at home --- At your kitchen table --- In your underwear
Buy now, pay later --- Shake your money maker
Only 99.99 --- Ka-ching --- Nickel and dimed
Hey big spender, spend a little time with me
Ka-ching, bling-bling

Right on the money
Money makes the world go round
That clinking-clanking sound makes the world go round, go round
Greed breeds the need for mo' money, mo' money, mo' money
Ka-ching, bling-bling --- Cash is king
Money talks, bullshit walks
No money, no honey

A penny for your thoughts
And the almighty buck stops nowhere
Pay the rent, pay the bills
There's gold in them thar hills
The high cost of living and life is cheap
Right on the money, war --- death and taxes
Nothing but dead presidents --- Yeah baby, it's only money!
