Henri Gerro later wrote a completely different lyric to this same tune. I sang the Aaron Lebedeff version.


First verse:
Because of money everybody will love you
Because of money people ask your advice
Because of money you always are respected
Because of money people tip their hats to you
Because of money you're dear to everyone
Because of money everybody loves you
For money you'll run into fire
And for money, you'll run even into the grave

Everything for money, only money, the little bit of cash...
Everything for money, it's only money that'll get you everything.
I swear to you, there's nothing to it, if you have money and you're rich
Yikes, the whole world loves the little bit of money.
