Though you know we wish we could
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good”

Money, get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you’re okay.
Money, its a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.

Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise it’s no surprise
that they’re giving none away

Pink Floyd
Dark Side of the Moon

(if you drive a car, car;) I’ll tax the street;
(if you try to sit, sit;) – I’ll tax your seat;
(if you get too cold, cold;) – I’ll tax the heat;
(if you take a walk, walk;) – I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for
If you don’t want to pay some more
Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Now my advice for those who die, (taxman)
Declare the pennies on your eyes. (taxman)
Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Beatles
Revolver [UK]

But outside of that, I’ve no use for dough.
It’s the root of all evil,
Of strife and upheaval.
But I’m certain, honey, that life would be sunny
With plenty of money and you.

Tony Bennett
Three Of A Kind – Ray & Tony Sing And Basie Swings

I’m going to be a happy idiot
And struggle for the legal tender
Where the ads take aim and lay their claim
To the heart and the soul of the spender

Jackson Browne
The Pretender

And if your train’s on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay

Takin Care of Business

Greenbacks – by Ray Charles

Now I’m not talking ’bout excessive greed.
The kind that puzzled the scribes and Pharisees.
I don’t worship it like a golden calf,
But change in my pocket is always good for a laugh.

I’ve seen it brighten up the eyes of a child
It even makes the Dali Lama smile.
It’s no relation tot he meaning of life,
It’s a dang fool husband doesn’t spring for his wife.

A little spending money.
Money to burn.
Money that you did not necessarily earn.
Rainy days seem to wind up sunny,
Long as you got a little spending money.

I got no financial conscience.
Can’t worry where it went.
A lasting treasure or a moment of pleasure
Worth it every cent.

Coin or paper baby,
Silver or gold.
All denominations, nouveau or old.
Can’t have a turkey without oyster dressing,
It’s the root of all evil, the sum of your blessings.

Don’t need no armored car or time locked vault,
Don’t need no shaker full, just a few grains of salt.
You may get by lookin’ good and being funny,
But life’s a little less restrained.

With a little spending money.
Money to burn.
Money that you did not necessarily earn.
Rainy days seem to wind up sunny,
Long as you got a little spendin’ money…
Long as you got a little spendin’ money…

As I was walking down the street last night
A pretty little girl came into sight
I bowed and smiled and asked her name
She said, “Hold it bud, I don’t play that game”
I reached in my pocket, and to her big surprise
There was Lincoln staring her dead in the eyes

On a greenback, greenback dollar bill
Just a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyll

She looked at me with that familiar desire
Her eyes lit up like they were on fire
She said, “My name’s Flo, and you’re on the right track
But look here, daddy, I wear furs on my back
So if you want to have fun in this man’s land
Let Lincoln and Jackson start shaking hands”

On a greenback, greenback dollar bill
Just a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyll

I didn’t know what I was getting into
But I popped Lincoln and Jackson, too
I didn’t mind seeing them fade out of sight
I just knew I’d have some fun last night
Whenever you in town and looking for a thrill
If Lincoln can’t get it, Jackson sure will

On a greenback, greenback dollar bill
Just a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyll

We went to a nightspot where the lights were low
Dined and danced, and I was ready to go
I got out of my seat, and when Flo arose
She said, “Hold on daddy, while I powder my nose”
I sat back down with a smiling face
While she went down to the powder place

With my greenback, greenback dollar bill
Just a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyll

The music stopped and the lights came on
I looked around and saw I was all alone
I didn’t know how long Flo had been gone
But a nose powder sure didn’t take that long
I left the place with tears in my eyes
As I waved Lincoln and Jackson a last goodbye

On a greenback, greenback dollar bill
Just a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyll
