I’d Rather Be Wealthy

     I think a little humor may be in order for a spring, winter, winter/ spring day. The following is tongue-in-cheek, but I still would like to hit that jackpot..

    Have a wonderful Thursday everyone,

Jake.

What's it going to be, blonde, brunette or redhead?

What’s it going to be,
blonde, brunette or redhead?

  

I’d Rather Be Wealthy

I’d rather be wealthy

than handsome,

yes, I’ll take the money

all right.

‘Cause a bag full of money

hides a whole lot of ugly

when she is looking

for her Mr. Right.

*

So no, I won’t be

the very best looking,

nor will I possess

a great bod.

But when she gets a look

at my bankbook,

I’ll look as handsome

as a mythic Greek god.

*

Oh, they say that you cannot

buy happiness,

and that your beauty

it comes from within.

But I’ll be one

happy camper,

when some big jackpot

I win.

*

Then I’ll have my pick

of the ladies,

and oh how, they’ll flock

to my side.

Then I’ll pick and choose

who will win and who’ll lose,

and perhaps heads or tails

will decide.

*

So, I’d rather be wealthy

than handsome,

yes, I’ll take the money

all right.

‘Cause a bag full of money

attracts a whole lot of pretty,

especially the shallow

and trite.
