Money So Divine

Music: Leonard Sam
Lyrics: Leonard Sam

Grade 8 piano, ballet
Chocolate truffle, soufflé
People say
“Oh, so cultured, so nice”
Ferragamo, Hermes
Gourmet coffee café
All these come at a premium price

Money!
Oh, she looks so divine
I would give all my strength
Heart and mind
So she can be mine

Patek Philippe so cool
Tailored suits from Raoul
Such essentials need money to spare
So when you have a lot
From a high paying job
You won’t have to be saddled with care

Money!
Oh, she looks so divine
I would give all my strength
Heart and mind
So she can be mine

Once, long ago
We lived hand to mouth in such poverty
But we were contented
Your grandpa, your grandma and me
I remember her smile
As she said to me, “Child”
“Give thanks for new blessings each day”
But her heart made of gold
Couldn’t pay what we owed
For the medicine, the hospital stay

Finally, when we couldn’t pay
Her life was taken away
Goodness is so over-rated
I don’t care if I’m rich and I’m hated
So what if I danced with the devil
What does it matter

Money!
Oh, she looks so divine
I would give all my strength
Heart and mind
Give her all of my time
With these hands I will take what is mine

Money so divine!
