Song Lyric Sunday

Jim is the host. https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2022/05/21/where-to-invest/

This week the theme is songs that mention Money, Gold, Silver, Rich suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II. 

I knew immediately what song I wanted to pick! This is an ultimate favorite of mine!

Lyrics

Money
Get away
You get a good job with more pay and you’re okay
Money
It’s a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash

New car, caviar, four star, daydream
Think I’ll buy me a football team

Money
Get back
I’m alright, Jack, keep your hands off of my stack
Money
It’s a hit
Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit

I’m in the high-fidelity first-class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

Money
It’s a crime
Share it fairly, but don’t take a slice of my pie
Money
So they say
Is the root of all evil today

But if you ask for a rise
It’s no surprise that they’re giving none away
Away, away, away
Away, away, away

I was in the right
Yes, absolutely in the right
I certainly was in the right
Yeah, I was definitely in the right, that geezer was cruisin’ for a bruisin’
Yeah!
Why does anyone do anything?
I don’t know, I was really drunk at the time
Just telling him it was in, he could get it in number two
He was asking why it wasn’t coming up on freight eleven
And after, I was yelling and screaming and telling him why
It wasn’t coming up on freight eleven

Most expensive places to live in the US

I saw a post this morning about the cheapest place to rent a home in the US. It didn’t have an option to leave a reply so I didn’t see what the city was, as it was not mentioned. Anyhow, in looking I did find the most expensive places to live. I wanted to copy and paste the article but it is 12 pages long.

Here is the site: https://247wallst.com/special-report/2021/07/10/most-expensive-cities-to-buy-a-home/2/

I’m posting the first few “cheapest” then the last few “most expensive”.
