Money has always been tight, but these days it’s ridiculous.  My kid is looking at colleges, and I’m looking at loan packages.  I made a real investment the other day; I bought a lottery ticket.  And they’re talking on TV about how things are getting worse.  I’m not going to leap off a tall Wall Street skyscraper just yet,  but now I can see how you come to climb those stairs.  Does anyone really think that voting for one of those two clowns is going to change anything?  Maybe it’s one of those things that will just pass, maybe things will fix themselves.  Maybe those guys up in Washington are just going to make everything worse.  Maybe things will change if, on one work day, everybody just stays in bed.

Well, anyway, here are some songs to get your mind off your money woes.  Ho, ho.
