Not what you are,
But what you've earned
Where jack-queen-king
Money's concerned
A friend in need is a friend in debt
That kinda friend king money can forget.
May those that are full get struck dumb
When they tell the hungry of the good times
To come,
More money than sense in their defence
And cheaper jokes at our expense

So if your king is money
Then I feel sorry for you
And if you think that it's funny
