The Lyrics

This is the fourth time I've gone to this saccharine source. I hope it'll be the last.
Lucre, Lucre

Lucre,
Oh money, money.
They say you're filthy, still—
You have got me wantin' you.
Money,
Oh lucre, lucre.
They say you're filthy, still—
You have got me wantin' you.

I just love those leaves the money presses can produce
(The money presses produce)
Love that legal tender, even the elusive deuce
(The elusive deuce)

Lucre,
Oh money, money.
They say you're filthy, still—
You have got me wantin' you.
Money,
Oh lucre, lucre.
They say you're filthy, still—
You have got me wantin' you.

They can have their pearls,
Their diamonds, and their fat rubies
(Oh they can have their fat rubies)
I like 10s and 1s—5s
Especially the new 20s
(Especially the new 20s)

Pour that filthy lucre over me—money (lucre)
Pour that filthy lucre on me—20s (money, money)
Pour lots of lucre on me (oh yeah)
Poor? Not with lucre on me (money)
Pour lots of lucre on me, baby.
I'm like Scrooge McDuck in heat (hey, hey, hey).

John, Hmmmm....all I can remember about this song is the "hook" line. You've got that part down nicely here. I'll come back to this later on. Say, are you allowed to have Scrooge McDuck in heat now? (Just kidding, ChuckyG, gotta have a little fun with it to stay loose)

Well, I've worked past my "Archie's" aversion and taken my meds to avoid blood sugar problems when thinking about them. 5's, JB.

On Rick Duncan's "Lucre, Lucre" I said "Duncan-for-Dollars! 5's !" ..... On this one, I say "Barry-for-Bucks! 5's !"

You're a little early, John. The Republican Convention is next month.

Damn, Rick, I missed yours when I was checking for other takes on this tune. Different approaches at least. I like yours better.

I just love those leaves the money presses can produce (The money presses produce) Love that legal tender, even the elusive deuce (The elusive deuce) Wow. The 'Deuce' line gets you 5s right on the spot. Since you like them so much, here you go. 5-5-5
