Oh, there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Money don’t grow on trees.
I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love
And then there’s the other lines that pop up with it, lines from other songs that mention amounts of money, not necessarily logically spliced into this strange medley:
Money, its a crime./Share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie. (Pink Floyd)
And money is never enough/Here’s a penny for your thoughts/A quarter for the call (Wilkinsons)
He would starve himself for a penny (Who)
Here’s a quarter call someone who cares (Travis Tritt)
If money is such a problem (Good Charlotte)She’s got her daddy’s money (Ricochet)
Honey, your love’s better than money in the bank. (John Anderson)
Money changes everything (The Brains)
You’ve got money to burn (Whitesnake)
Go on take the money and run (The Steve Miller Band)
I need some money, Need some money. Oh yeah, what I want (John Lee Hooker)
And so forth…I hope that all of the songwriters and recording artists who own the rights to the songs those lyrical snippets came from can forgive my brain for the amalgam.
One thing I started wondering, though, is if the songs that mention specific amounts of money (like the Wilkinsons’ and Travis Tritt’s songs) would need to be adjusted for inflation?
