Money, Money, Money
By Kamiel Proost on June 19, 2011
I had a Dream, last night (2x)
On a field in the park
I saw a Tree, last Night
And it was shining bright
as I walked upon
It was shining bright
as a smiling Sun
And then my Eyes could not Believe..!!
It had the most appealing leaves
They were all rectangular
And had numbers and faces
of Kings and Queens on there
My blood started pumping
Boiling, with a rush of Joy
I thought: Oh my Boy..!!
I’m saved. I’m Saved!!
Oh can’t you see:
I found the Great Big Money Tree..!!
I need a Sack
I need a Bag
I’ll take as much as I can Stack
A Bag, my Kingdom for a Bag..!!
And suddenly 1 2 3 Bags
were right in front of me..
I filled them all
Yes I was saved!!
Never had to work again
Untill my dying day
I was a Millionare..!!!
I could buy Rolex, Versace & Gucci
I would eat Sushi
From Kate Moss’s Pussy
I would be One of the Lucky Few
With Diamonds on the soles of my Shoe
I would be Friends with the Greatest of the Earth
Like Britney and Puff Daddy
Mabey even Lionel Richie..
I’d buy a Golden Jacuzzi
A trip to the Moon
A Mansion in Malibu
I mean what would You… Do.?
Feeling good feeling Good
All the money in the World
Spent on feeling good…
Oh yes my Biggest Dream would finally come True
I’d ride a stretched limo HUMMER
Through da Hood
Oh Money Money Money…
It’s so Funny inna rich mans world..
Pornstars would Yell and Scream
I’d fill my pool with Champange
I’d Ski down mountains of Cocaine
And buy a Private Aeroplane.
See all Them Hookers go insane
I am so Rich
I can get just every Girl
I am so rich
I can Fuck the Whole Wide World
Money money money
I took the Full Bags home with me
No one should see
Or else they’d all be robbing me
When I woke up
The bags were
there next to my bed
A rush of Joy exploded in my Head
Feeling Good Feeling Good
All the Money in the world
Spent on Feeling good
I was the Richest Man in the Neighborhood
But then my notes had turned from Green to Brown
From square to round
The numbers had all disappeared, man this was weird..
And I would dig deeper to see if out there
The leaves would still be green and square
With the faces of Kings and Queens on there
With numbers that made me dream without care
But I threw Dead Leaves around
Turning my floor into Forest Ground
I took Sack 1,
I took Sack 2
I started screaming:” OooHooHoooOO..!!!
Oh No. Where did all my money go..!?”
I took bag 3 and dug in deep
A tunnel of dead Old Leaves
Opened right in Front of Me
And I fell over
I fell down
and tumbled round
& on the bottom there I found
One Untouched Note
I could not believe what my Rich Eyes did see..
This Bill was Worth Infinity…!!!
I ran to my Computer Screen
To immediately buy all my Dreams
I was the Highest Bidder the web did ever see
And with One Click I bought all our Galaxy
At First, I do admit
I wanted to kick everybody out
I Just wanted to enjoy my Little Galaxy alone
It allready felt quite like Home
I just needed an army of a Billion Clones
To kick all you Losers Out
But then a little voice inside did tell
“I will be working endlessly like hell “
Both day and night
You’ll have to chase and fight
Does that feel right.?
And I thought: You know what I gonna do..?
I just gonna Boogaloo..!!
And share all my Kingdom here with You..!!
Yeah, what the Hell
It’s my Galaxy
But I won’t tell
I’ll share my Wealth
With You and Me
And I’ll sing Song to set You Free
