Subject: RE: Songs about money ($$$$$$$$$$)
At the link is the text to The Golden Apple as performed on Broadway in 1954. This differs from the off-Broadway version and the version authorized today in the final two pages. "Hector's Song", about various temptations, including money, occurs about 2/3 of the way through and begins with the line "Now we will have our revenge on them". "Scylla and Charybdis", which involves a commodities market scam, is about 3/4 of the way through and begins with the question "Want to be an empire builder?". http://archive.org/stream/goldenapplemusic00moro/goldenapplemusic00moro_djvu.txt
