A Twenty Dollar Bill and Why Lyrics

Caroline, or Change the Musical - A Twenty Dollar Bill and Why Lyrics

A twenty dollar bill! And why?
Upon what should we contemplate?
Allow me please to explicate:
What's the meaning of this Gelt?

For peace sometimes, blood must be spilt.
For life, sometimes, a good man dies.
What means this money, Noah boychick?
You won't learn this in Arithmetic!

Money follows certain laws,
It's worth how much it's worth because
Somewhere, something's valued less;
It's how our blessings come, I guess.
Golden, shiny, but never pure.
Think from whence your riches stem.
Think of someone who is porr:
And know, you stole this gold from them.
Especially here in the Devil's South!
You rip your gold from a starving man?s mouth!

Oh for pete's sake dad!
Give him the money!
Good! Say thank you, honey.

Thank you.

Noah! Never forget!

Stuart, play the clarinet!

A happy happy Chanukah night!
What a party, what a goose!
Fun, huh? Noah?
Oh what's the use?

It's cold tonight; my feet are numb;
I'm tired waiting for a bus that won't come.
