We Want To Make Some Money

We Want To Make Some Money (Parody of We Didn’t Start The Fire by Billy Joel. If you’re not completely familiar, take a look at the music video, it’s always been a favorite of mine.)

We work hard every day, make our money, get our pay

9 to 5 to pay our bills but at the end we’re broke


Something’s wrong with the world today, why is it that poor we stay

While others make the money and get richer all the time


There must be some secret trick, to get money make it stick

Keep it in your bank account and watch it start to grow


I’m going to learn it all, learn the secrets, play ball

Make some money, keep the money, retire with the dough



We want to make some money

We want to get rich fast and then we’ll make it last

We want to make some money

Yes we want it quick but not a scam or trick



Books all say the same thing, financial freedom is what they sing

Save now, invest now, pay yourself first


Stock market, real estate, build a business, never wait

Passive income is what you need, gotta build the thirst


Forget employee, specialist, building a business is what’s best

Have people work for you, then the big bucks you accrue


Find a mission, build a team, work hard, play the game

Make money big time, more than you can handle






Invest in some real estate, buy and flip, celebrate

Roll it over, 1031 like monopoly is lots of fun


4 green houses for a red hotel, rent them out then make the sale

Foreclosures and REO get them all to cash flow


Read the paper, read a book, read some blogs, take a look

Make a plan, follow well, learn how to buy and sell


Take it in your own hands invest your money take a stand

Trade stocks, mutual funds, personal loans and government bonds






If you want to stay safe, max out your 401k

Add to it pre tax and hope the market doesn’t crash


Compound interest is your friend, to the bank you will lend

Add to it every week, in 40 years you’ll be free


Work hard all your life, saving money is your strife

Retire young, get paid, what else do I have to say






Avoid scams on the net to your time, they’re a threat

Rich Jerk, MLM, pyramid schemes


Lottery, game shows, gambling money really blows

Falsified criteria, rich guy in Nigeria


Make money from your home, click on ads while you roam

Sell stuff on e-bay, bid it up then start to pray


Write a blog, write some more, get your adsense that’s for sure

All this work is such a chore, I can’t take this anymore


We want to make some money

We want to get rich fast and then make it last

We want to make some money

But time slips away each and every day and day and day…
