The Lyrics

Do You Believe in Mammon?

Do you believe in Mammon, and does money start
Your pulse racing freely, does it amp up your heart?
And for Mammon you love "Sierra Madre,"
Which makes you feel happy, this old gold-mine movie.
You know it is to Mammon that you've sold your soul.
It's just like having a big grange chock full of rocks and gold.

If you believe in Mammon, don't bother to choose,
You can just spend anything to buy some new shoes.
You're going missing on the Miracle Mile,
And when you do resurface, you are dressed in high style.
Your feet start tappin' in your Gucci size nines,
And you're thinkin' about diamond mines.

If you believe in Mammon, you will wanna see
A chance to go gorging on a big shopping spree.
And maybe, if you're doing it right,
You'll sweep up everything that is in your sight.
And you'll be enhancing your reliquary,
Now that Mammon is your muse and that you relish money.

Yeah, do you believe in Mammon?
Believe that for Mammon you will set your goals?
Believe that for Mammon you will seek your gold?
Believe that for Mammon you will set your fees?
Oh, worshipping Mammon.

Do you believe in Mammon?
[Fade]

Burbank used to look like Sierra Madre, but now it is looking more and more like Brooklyn because of love of mammon.

Now you can do Al Jolson's "My Mammy" as "My Mammon".
