Lyrics

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
