And now for something completely different…

Here are the lyrics in case you’d like to sing along:

The Money Song
I’ve got ninety thousand pounds in my pyjamas.
I’ve got forty thousand French francs in my fridge.
I’ve got lots of lovely lire.
Now the Deutschmark’s getting dearer,
And my dollar bills would buy the Brooklyn Bridge.

There is nothing quite as wonderful as money.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as cash.
Some people say it’s folly,
But I’d rather have the lolly.
With money you can make a splash.

There is nothing quite as wonderful as money.
(Money, money, money, money.)
There is nothing like a newly minted pound.
(Money, money, money, money.)

Everyone must hanker
For the butchness of a banker.
It’s accountancy that makes the world go ’round.
(‘Round, ’round, ’round.)

You can keep your Marxist ways,
For it’s only just a phase,
For it’s money, money, money makes the world go ’round.
(Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, moneeeeey!)

Tune in next time when I explain just how the hell the British monetary system works, anyhow.
