The Money Song

Lyrics:

☀Help the homeless!

Help the homeless! Ooh! Hey Princeton!

Give me a quarter! Here in my hat! Come on, Princeton! It's as easy as that! Helping others brings you Closer to God. So give me a quarter...

I don't have any change.

Hmmm... okay.

Give me a dollar.

That's not what I meant.

Give me a five.

Are you kidding?

The more you give. The more you get. That's being alive! All I'm asking you Is to do what Jesus Christ would do. He'd give me a quarter, Why don't you?

All right, all right, here you go.

Ahh, thanks!

Take care. Whoa!

What's the matter?

I feel generous! I feel compassionate!

You do?

Yeah! I feel like a new person - a good person! Helping other people out makes you feel fantastic!

That's what I've been trying to tell you-

All this time I've been running around thinking About me, me, me - and where has it gotten me! I'm gonna do something for someone else!

Me?

No - Kate! I'm going to raise the money to build that Stupid Monster School she's always talking about!

Give me your money!

What?

I need it for Kate!

I need it to eat!

Come on, Nicky!

Aww, get lost!

It'll make you feel great!

So would a burger!

When her dream comes true, It'll all be partly Thanks to you So give me your money!

I'd like to, but I can't.

Give me your money!

I'd like to, but I need it!

Give me your money!

I'd like to, but I'm homeless! I can't! I need it! I'm homeless! I can't! I need it! I'm homeless! I can't! I need it! I'm homeless! Okay, here you go.

Thank you!

Suddenly, I am feeling Closer to God. It's time to stop begging It's time to start giving! What can I give to Rod?

Something he'll like so much he'll take me back. Ooh, I know! I'll find him a boyfriend!

That's the spirit!

When you help others, You can't help helping yourself! When you help others, You can't help helping yourself!

Hey boys, what's the hat for?

Ooh, we're collecting money!

It's for Kate! We're raising money to help build her dream school!

Give us your money!

You'll be glad that you did!

That's just what my parents told me When I was a kid.

Sh*t.

But giving feels so great...

And I bet it wouldn't hurt Your chances with Kate.

Well, that too.

I'll give you a dollar.

You're a gentleman And a scholar.

We so happy! We just exchange all your wedding gifts for cash!

Honey, don't tell THEM that!

We get about 2, 000 bucks!

Uh, yeah, so - thanks, everybody!

We rich!

Give us your money!

Give us your money!

Give us your goddamn money!

Give us the dough!

Give us the dough!

We're raising money For a Monster School But we've got a ways to go.

Sounds like you've Got money to burn

And it's not like money That you had to earn.

So give us your money -

A monster school?

Sounds like a good cause.

Give me your wallet.

Oh my gosh! I don't know how to thank you guys. I mean, Kate will be so grateful! That kind of money is such a great start...

Yeah, $15.

$15?

Every little bit help.

Looks like we're gonna have to ask MORE people!

Hey! Give us your money! All that you've got! Just fork it on over...

Or some puppets Will get shot!

Hey!

It's time to pass the hat

And there's nothing you can do 'bout that

So give us your money! Give us your money! Give us your money! When you help others, You can't help helping yourself! When you help others, You can't help helping yourself! Every time you Do good deeds You're also serving Your own needs. When you help others, You can't help helping yourself! When you give To a worthy cause You'll feel as jolly As Santa Clause. When you help others, You can't Help Helping yourself!
