By Robert J. Stein. Tune-"Woman's the Cause of It All."

If you listen to me, I will sing you a song,
Money's the cause of it all.
Now don't walk away, it won't take me long,
Money's the cause of it all.
For instance, I'll start with a laboring man;
He'll go off on a drunk whenever he can;
If his friend's got a dime, you can bet he's a man­Money's the cause of it all.

If you catch on to a girl out in the street,
Money's the cause of it all.
You bet your sweet life you'll have to treat­Money's the cause of it all.
And if you tell her that you are dead-broke,
She'll give you a look as though she would croke;
And when she shakes you, you'll have to mope­Money's the cause of it all.

What's the reason some men are taking their lives­Money's the cause of it all.
Some have good homes and other's good wives­Money's the cause of it all.
They get into a quarrel and then all is o'er.
The man leaves his home and is seen no more;
The wife now lives with her mother-in-law­Money's the cause of it all.

The cashiers of banks make a big haul­Money's the cause of it all.
They leave here for Canada or Montreal­Money's the cause of it all.
And when you look for him the very next morn,
You'll hunt high and low and find he has gone
With the large sum of money which he has drawn­Money's the cause of it all.

Of political subjects we all have our say­Money's the cause of it all;
You know very well we can't have our own way­Money's the cause of it all.
I suppose you're all waiting for '92,
For the Chair to be filled by Chauncey Depew;
If another man takes it, he will surprise you­Money's the cause of it all.

Why did the crank visit Sage on Broadway­Money's the cause of it all.
He knew what he was after, that very day­Money's the cause of it all.
He produced a letter, and in it it said:
Give bearer the money or you will drop dead;
Sage smiled for a moment, then he turned red­Boom-bang-Money's the cause of it all.
