Lyrics:

THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN BUY
------------------------------------------------

VERSE

I toil and labor
Every day of the week
I don't know my neighbors
They think I'm a freak

Workaholic endeavors
Through the day and all night.
Can't do this forever
But while I live it feels right

I'll strive to achieve
The greatest possible wealth
Even if doing that means
That I'm hurting my health

CHORUS
I'll work any task so that
on the day that I die
I'll get the best casket
That money can buy

Got to keep earning that money
Till I tell Earth goodbye
I'll rest in the best coffin
That money can buy

VERSE

I'm saving my dollars
for the best coffin made
Gold - 24 carats
And diamonds inlaid

Mahogany handles
and velvet and silk
Ebony panels
All hand custom built

I know this will cost me
and that's why I work
Even though it's exhausting
I'll rest well in the earth

CHORUS
I'll work any task so that
on the day that I die
I'll get the best casket
That money can buy

Got to keep earning that money
Till I tell Earth goodbye
I'll rest in the best coffin
That money can buy

VERSE
Silver threaded pillows
With the finest soft down
Everybody then will know
I'm content in the ground

Platinum intials
of my name on the side
and the top, and Sarovski crystals
that say the date that I died

I'm saving every penny
investing each dime
So that I will have plenty
When it's funeral time

CHORUS
I'll work any task so that
on the day that I die
I'll get the best casket
That money can buy

Got to keep earning that money
Till I tell Earth goodbye
I'll rest in the best coffin
That money can buy!
