The love of money

Smooth green paper, to love it
Here today gone tomorrow
Makes some happy
Yet all are in deep sorrow
for what money buys
fades away
remembered now
forgotten in a day
time is gold
spent on silver
working weeks
lasting forever
wars live loud
and then die with a hiss
fought for glory
and a silent kiss
smooth green paper, to love it
makes you proud
Following the world
one with the crowd
smooth green paper
will build you a fence
trap you with walls
and a black cloud so dense
silk clothing you wear
and rings of fine rock
Still the key to your heart
will stay locked
money you trust in
and to it bow down
in a pool of wealth
your joy will drown
smooth rich paper
you love it
painted in green
true meaning and worth
true joy and living
cannot be found
if in money you trust

The love of money
