The Lyrics

I love cash, it's neat
I love cash, it's sweet
Something no household should be without..

Everybody ought to have it made
Everybody ought to have a billion bucks
Everybody ought to have a zillion bucks
Fancy mansion - for a house..

Everybody ought to have it made
Everybody ought to have nice jewelry
Some babes just for tomfoolery
Ones who'll never tell the spouse

Oh yes, wouldn't it be fantastic
If cash bombs bombastic - dropped from the sky?
Oh, oh, wouldn't it be so rightful,
Gath'ring up, piling high?

Everyone could own some bonds and stocks
Real estate, investments, and a bank account
One huge nest egg - a swank amount
Cash smelling around the house..

Jaguar-ing down the freeway
Clubbing out on the golf course
Chand'liers high with head room
Lecturing all the servants
Lechering all around - a louse!

Ohh, ohh, why can't a Genie's wishes
Pop from a lamp with swishes - flash in a puff
Ohh, oh, couldn't we fill our dishes
Bury some - mattress stuff

Everybody ought to have it made
Comfy wealthy assets to fall back on nice
Be Vegas cool, like Shaq on dice
And grateful as milked cows..

Bowling lanes in the hallway
Swimming pools and billiards
Caviar in the pantry
Dancing girls in the bedroom
Each with a see-through blouse..

It made! It made! It made! It made!

Everybody ought to have it made,
Everybody ought to be as blessed as Trump
A cashmere couch to rest our rump,
A gold gun for hunting grouse..

We should have every dollar we've wished for
More than our minds could ever dream about
Oh, yes, wouldn't we have our nights full
Credit cards, miles of clout...

Every steak would be mignon fileted
For our teeth to floss, some Sterling Silver strings
On hands and feet, ten carat rings
Jade parakeets - ermine mouse

Yachts on the Bay of Galway
Greet by name, bank tellers
Withdrawal scratch for itching
Our own diamond crypt, when dead-room
Rolls Royce cars inside the house!
The house!
The house!
The house!

It made! It made! It made! It made!

Everybody ought to have it made
Financial security, immovable
All credit checks - rock prove-able
Cash flame Satan couldn't douse..

Oh, oh, enough to buy out Gimbels
Stuff in Macy's and Gimbels, all of New York town
Oh, oh, really a sore eyed sightful
Moolah to toss around..

Everybody ought to have it made,
Everyone deserves a huge inheritance
Mountains of dough - to share in once
A rich uncle died in Laos

Shoving it in our "Fruit a' Looms"
To castaway impov'rished glooms,
We'd all forget that day of dooms,
Having for real, not just assumes
Mega-ton bucks around the house!
The house!
The house!
The house!

And Lord, if you can't swing for everybody,
At least..let it be...
For me!

One thought for the day - good one.

Love the cash bombs line-555! Made me think of a quote by someone who once said that "if the Allies just dropped dirt on Germany, it would have crippled their war production as they would have been too busy sweeping the streets all day to make weapons!!!"

But if everyone had it made, who would do all the work? Great job on this . 555 (Security Code is 38K - Whoopee! I'm rich!)

From a caste system to a cash system. I'm good with that.

You may yet see that day, though the cash won't buy much. To quote from "The Black Obelisk" by Erich Maria Remarque, "'Hand over another pound of that wallpaper,' I say. 'This is not more than five thousand. Catholic profiteers put that much in the collection plate at Sunday mass and feel ashamed of being so stingy.'" Near the end of that story (set in 1920s Germany), the characters were throwing around trillions.
