The Lyrics

A sum you might borrow…seems like there’s no harm,
but when payoff’s due—wait and see:
You may find that you will get the strong arm.
To borrow is wrong, trust me.

If loans you are givin’, there might not be seen
a quick return of the money.
Or maybe you will be out all that green.
Tell borrowers “No!” trust me.

To lend and to borrow are simply not wise,
Polonius counseled wisely.
So leave the vig and such to the wise guys.
To borrow is wrong, clearly.

Don't bother, man, bother ma’am—you must decline
to borrow or lend; seek safety.
If you are a victim, you will repine.
A borrower’s wrong; a lender is wrong.
And neither one should you be.

Great song from movie that also noted that "Money Makes The World Go Round". I haven't seen many parodies to this tune. I've always admired your clever phrasing and vocabulary.

Between us we own three fourths of the parodies of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me".
