The Lyrics

Someone had submitted one under "Doug" before, so i got a new name and needed to lock it in, so I wrote this little ditty about a game of Monopoly on a rainy day.
I’ve been buyin’ lots of railroads
All the live long day.
I’ve been buyin’ lots of railroads
‘cause the rain won’t go away.
Can’t you see my homes on Boardwalk,
My hotel on Atlantic
Soon I’ll own enough property
To make other players sick.

My monopoly,
My monopoly,
My monopoly will make me rich.
My monopoly,
My monopoly,
Will make me so filthy rich.

Someone's got hotels on Vermont, oh!
Got to pay on Tennessee, too.
Suddenly I'm losin' but I know,
I'll win later on at Clue.

I'm losing all of my dough
My Monopoly will goo-o-o
I'm losing all of my dough
But I can win still at Clue
I've never heard the second part that I can recall, so I don't know if I got it just right, but I tried.
