​The Money Tree

This song is by Patience & Prudence and appears on the EP A Smile And A Song (1957) and on the album The Best Of Patience And Prudence (2004).

Pull up an easy chair and sit yourself down and lean back
While we tell ya about the folks who live in the town of Greenback
They never have to work on their hands and knees
'Cause they live in a place where money grows on trees

Oh the money tree, the money tree
It's a beautiful sight to see.
Why couldn't it happen to you and me

There isn't a person in town who isn't a regal spender
And they never wear a frown for lack of that legal tender
They're all ten years ahead on their income tax
And the whole town's driving next year's Cadillacs

Oh the money tree, the money tree
It's a beautiful sight to see.
Why couldn't it happen to you and me

Well it grows fresh new bills that snap and crack
As fast as you pick 'em it grows 'em back
Every day there's a bumper crop
With a million dollar bill way up on top

Now there is just one way to visit the town of Greenback
Pull up an easy chair and sit yourself down and lean back

Then close your eyes and suddenly you will see
That beautiful, lovely, wonderful Money Tree!

Oh the money tree, the money tree
It's a beautiful sight to see.
Why couldn't it happen to you and me
