Money Is the Answer To Everything
Bill Shipper

A feast will make you happy, wine will make you sing
But money is the answer to everything. (2x)

Once I had some money, I had a fancy car
My friends, they all loved me and said I’m going far
But then I lost my money, my car died on the street
And now I’m going far, but it’s only with my feet ‘cause

A feast will make you happy, wine will make you sing
But money is the answer to everything. (2x)

Once I met a beggar, he asked me for a buck
I turned out my pockets and said you’re out of luck.
He told me how to hold my hand, he told me what to say
He gave me fifty cents and he sent me on my way
(Solo over chorus)

A hole is in my pocket, a hole is in my shoe
A hole is in this dollar and I don’t know what to do.
Stitches for the pocket, cardboard for the shoe
Give away the dollar, then I’ll be holy too ‘cause

A feast will make you happy, wine will make you sing
But money is the answer to everything. (2x)

And when I get my riches I know just what I’ll do
I’m gonna buy a mansion, a diamond and some shoes
The mansion I will live in, the diamond for my wife.
The shoes will keep my feet warm for the rest of my life
(Solo over chorus)

A dollar in my pocket, I wish that I had two
A quarter on the sidewalk, a penny in my shoe
The dollar’s for some coffee, the quarter is for you
The penny keeps my thoughts on what I would rather do ‘cause

A feast will make you happy, wine will make you sing
But money is the answer to everything. (2x)

When I’m dead and gone my family, they will weep.
I’ll leave them all my money but my shoes I will keep
Cause I’m gonna do some walking – no, I don’t mean I’ll roam
But stitch my sole up good, bud, ‘cause I’m a goin’ home ‘cause

A feast will make you happy, wine will make you sing
But money is the answer to everything. (4x)
