The Lyrics

This is my first parody song (think it counts as parody?) I wrote it before going to bed, so maybe in the light of day, it will seem pretty crappy... =/
Poor souls who choose to fall in love,
Can't they see love is just a tool.
But I know love comes with a price,
I want no bankrupt fool.

A rose or a sonnet may be considered romance,
But money is a true best friend.
Love comes from your wallet, and forget those sad sonnets,
If you seek a chance,
For me to fall under your trance.

True love is faux, this much I know,
The truth may be hard to comprehend.
But I know when you're left,
Sad, broke, poor and bereft,
Money is a true best friend.


Swimming Pools!

Fast Cars! Mansions!

Talk to me, Bill Gates, tell me all about it!

A kiss may be precious, and it may leave you breathless,
But money is a true best friend.
Cash and all its blisses beat out all those pure kisses,
And keeps your lover sweet,
And guarantees a nightly treat.

Life goes on,
When love is gone,
But what brings all the bills to an end?

So forget all your sorrows,
And look to tomorrow,
Cause money is a true best friend!

A great first submission. And, how true the lyrics ring, like silver dollars on a marble counter top.
