Subject: Lyr Add: CAN YOU USE ANY MONEY TODAY? (I. Berlin)
CAN YOU USE ANY MONEY TODAY?
Words and music by Irving Berlin
From the Broadway musical, "Call Me Madam" (1950)
As sung by Ethel Merman.

Money, money, money, money, money, money!
Can you use any money today?
Money, money, money, money, money, money!
Nice new bills that we're giving away!
There are photographs on ev'ry one:
Lincoln, Grant, and Washington,
Or you might like the ones with Henry Clay.
Can you use any money today?

Two million, four million, six million, eight million, ten!
Take what you want; when it's gone you can come back again.
Bills that haven't been printed yet,
You can have them by the sackó
Coins that haven't been minted yet,
That you never have to give back.
Money, money, money, money, money, money!
Uncle Sam puts it right on the line,
And if we ever run out of checks for him to sign,
You can have mine,
All of mine.
You can have mine.

Money, money, money, money, money, money!
Can you use any dollars today?
Money, money, money, money, money, money!
We've so much that it gets in our way.
In our treas'ry there's a mighty sum:
Millions we've subtracted from
The envelopes that hold our take-home pay.
Can you use any money today?

Home in the States underground there's a cave full of gold.
Back up a truck and we'll fill it with all it can hold.
Take ten million and please don't fuss
If you find it can't be spent.
You can lend it right back to us
And we'll pay you seven percent.
Money, money, money, money, money, money!
Uncle Sam puts it right on the line,
And if that fellow with whiskers ever should decline,
You can have mine,
All of mine.
You can have mine.
