Air—" Green grow the Rushes, O !"
Of friendship I have heard much talk;
But you will find it, in the end, That if distressed at any time,
Then money is your only friend.
Chorus—Yes, money is your only friend Money is your only friend; "Where'er you go, you'll find it so-— You must have money for to spend.

The lawyers want to see your cash— Then money is your only friend.

From every ill it will defend: In every exigence of life,
Dear money is your only friend.
Yes, money, etc.
