March 6th 2008: Money to Burn riseandshine.tv/2008/03/06/money-to-burn/

Another day, another dollar…

Based on the news of Warren Buffett’s elevation to the number one slot in the Forbes rich list, knocking Bill Gates into 3rd place with his $62 Billion fortune, March 6th 2008 saw the birth of a song called Money to Burn.

lyrics

Hey Bill it's a bitter pill
You ain't no more king of this hill
You slipped down to number 3
You me and Slim, the Holy Trinity
Hey Bill, you lost the top slot
But look at all the money money money that I got
I flash my cash, avoid the crash
But I don't do bling, 'cause I ain't trash

I got money to burn,
I got money to burn
I got money to burn,
How much do you earn?
I got money to burn,
I got money to burn
I got money to burn,
'til I'm old and infirm...

I'm rich, I'm stinking wealthy
I got so much it just ain't healthy
I don't remember how much I made
All I know is it helps me get laid
I got more money than I got sense
I don't care if you take offense,
Cause I'm just giving you my two cents,
When I charge such extortionate rents

I got money to burn,
I got money to burn
I got money to burn,
How much do you earn?
I got money to burn,
I got money to burn
I got money to burn,
'til I'm old and infirm...

I'm number one on the Forbes list
I don't give a fuck if that makes you pissed
See this ass? Well it gets kissed
And when you die you ain't gonna be missed
It ain't worth my while to lie to you
I don't need to struggle, I don't need to fight you
Cause there ain't nothing this cash can't buy
I got sixty two billion to comply

I got money to burn,
I got money to burn
I got money to burn,
How much do you earn?
I got money to burn,
I got money to burn
I got money to burn,
'til I'm old and infirm...
