I was taught from an age that was early
To save for a day that would be rainy
Because money does not grow on trees
Then one night, I started to wonder, to think
After having one or two (or maybe three) drinks
But would our problems become extinct
If money grew on trees
What denomination would they be?
Would all that money really be free?
Would it solve all our problems?
Would it really be that awesome?
What happens when it becomes autumn?
I think more problems it would create
Some would spend more then they would take
From my tree, thus sealing their fate
What happens when the wind blows
My money from my yard to who knows?
Do I collect or shrug and say that’s how it goes?
Will there be a limit on how many trees?
If you have one can I have three
Or would you think I’m full of greed?
What about all the trees on government land?
Could I walk there and grab a quick grand
Or would going there be banned?
Who would be there to guard
If the wind blew that money to my yard?
To give it up would be quite hard
Would it be finders keepers
And losers weepers?
I’m sure there would be lots of cheaters
Back to my statement, if money grew on trees
I really don’t think it would make life easy
Because some would spend so freely
While others would save for the winter
When the money falls and starts to wither
Oh the thought makes me shiver
Can you imagine the thievery there would be?
All because some pockets will always be empty
Not thinking of tomorrow when buying what today is trendy
They watch their 100 inch tv and drive their Lamborghini
But, unfortunately, they will have no food to eat
In those long cold months with no money on trees
And thus the twist in the plot
For those that have and have not
Which brings me back to my original thought
That it must be like some disease
That some people will never be happy
Even if money grew on trees
I must state it as a matter of fact, quite simply
That there are too many who act irresponsibly
Who would still be broke if money grew on trees
I don’t know about you, but for me
For those reasons I truly believe
I prefer just to have leaves on the trees
