Lyrics

Original

When they invented money
They invented greed
Now we're no longer trading
For all the things we need
I give you an egg
And get some butter back
Now I give you a coin
For all the things I lack
Hey!
I give you a pig
And get a sack of wheat
Now I give you some gold
When I desire to eat
Hey!
I give you a hat
And get a pair of shoes
Now there's no more of that
You pay for what you use
Money, money, money
Makes you poor or makes you rich
Money, money, money
It's the gold and silver itch
Money, money, money
Makes you poor or makes you rich
Money, money, money
It's the gold and silver itch
Would you take an egg
And give some butter back?
No I'd prefer a coin
For anything you lack
Hey!
Would you take a pig
If I gave you some wheat?
No I would like some gold
If you would like to eat
Hey!
I'll give you a hat
If you give me some shoes
Now there's no more of that
You pay for what you use
Money, money, money
Makes you poor or makes you rich
Money, money, money
It's the gold and silver itch
Hey!
Money, money, money
Makes you poor or makes you rich
Money, money, money
It's the gold and silver itch

Reprise

Aaron: You give me a coin
A ballad will I sing
Fill my bag with gold
While I am minstrelling
Tax collectors: Hey!
Aaron: You give me that pig
I'll sing your favorite song
For a sack of wheat
I'll make it twice as long
Tax collectors: Hey!
Aaron: I will trade that hat
For 'fa, so, la, ti, do'
BRutus: Now, there's no more of that
You'll sing for free, boy-o!
You collect money from us? Now there's a twist!
Tax collectors: Money, money, money
Makes you poor or makes you rich
Money, money, money
It's the gold and silver itch!
