The Lyrics

This Mammon moment--
As a grifter I grew
And became a lover
Of the filthy lu-

cre; I am happy
When I've prised every prize
Right out of the hands of you.
I'm with the greedy guys.

Sweeter than dimes,
Dollars are money delight.
Everything I wanna have! (everything!! everything!!!)
Clenched have I my rubles tight.

This Mammon moment:
Euro-o-o-os,
No-o-o-otes.
This Mammon moment:
Pe-e-e-sos.

Sweet when they're mine,
Dollars are money delight.
Everything I wanna have! (everything!! everything!!!)
Clenched have I my lucre tight.

This Mammon moment,
I don't tip; the waiters whine.
Till cash forever
Forever filled with yen. All mine!

Go-o-o-old (Mammon)
Ho-o-o-old (moment)
[to fade]
