Money Machine

Went to see my therapist in North Carolina, "Dr. Dave" Wilcox at the Wilcox Weekend last weekend. I was hoping he would offer some of his musical medicine for a dilemma I'm facing. He did in a way, but just gave me an idea for and an assignment to write a song instead of writing one for me. So I penned the lyrics this weekend. Still working out the guitar part, but it has a groove something like Cat Stevens' "It's a Wild World" or Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet" (or, if you're a Wilcox fan, something like "Rule #1" or "Start with the Ending".  Let me know what you think!

Money Machine

Wishing you could tear up all those bills?

You tell all your friends that it's all going fine
Besides after a while you get used to the smell
Now that China's in the game the dollar is low
If you're going to survive you need to double in size
Your capacity's peaked, but you still need to grow
You can make your alimony if you start a franchise

Just a turn of the crank and you'll be rolling in green
Three easy installments of nine ninety-nine
