Subject: Lyr Add: MONEY (sung by Mel Blanc)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 04 Apr 13 - 12:39 PM

You probably knew Mel Blanc as the voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and many other cartoon characters. He was also an occasional comic actor on The Jack Benny Program. Did you know he also recorded novelty songs? I gave this thread a generalized title because I expect I will be adding more songs. I was inspired by hearing this one on the radio today (The Dakota Dave Hull Show on KFAI) so I looked it up on Spotify and transcribed it. Happy reading.


MONEY
As sung by Mel Blanc on "Greatest Hits"

Don't want no lovin'; don't want no kissin'.
Don't want no gal to call me honey.
Don't want my name in the Hall of Fame.
Just want a big fat pile o' money.

Give me that almighty dollar.
For that lettuce, hear me holler.
Give me buckets full o' ducats.
Let me walk around and waller
In mazumah, el dinero.
Want to be a millionaire-o.
Give me money, money, money, money, money!

I want that green ammunition.
That's the stuff for which I'm wishin'.
Fill my closets with deposits.
I'm a demon at addition.
Give me shekels; give me pesos.
Let me see their smilin' face-o's.
Money, money, money, money, money!

I want to get me a suit
That's made out o' loot,
And whistle "The Wearin' o' the Green."
I've got that monetary-itis.
Like to be just like King Midas.
Want that golden touch, is what I mean.

Give me that old double eagle.
Want that tender that is legal,
And financially, substantially,
Any sum I can inveigle.
Want to live in regal splendor
With that lovin' legal tender.
Give me money, money, money, money, money!

[Spoken, in "another voice"] Hey, Mel! Here comes that Brinks armored truck again.

I'm a greenback collector.
I'm a paper-bill inspector.
I'm a savage for that cabbage.
Man, to me it's golden nectar.
Pour that filthy lucre on me.
Spread those lovin' germs upon me.
Give me money, money, money, money, money!

Just let me roll round upon it.
Stuff those bank-rags in my bonnet,
Any kind, just so some president
Has got his picture on it.
Let me feel it; let me hold it.
Let me sit there and fold it.
Give me money, money, money!

I want a carload o' cash,
The kind I can stash,
A vat full of vo-do-de-o-dough.
You know your banker never lets it
Matter whereabouts he gets it.
Have you got it, boy? That's all he wants to know.

Give me treasure I can measure,
'Cause that's my idea o' pleasure.
Give me wampum, gelt, or geetas(?).
Let me count it at my leisure.
Let me live in regal splendor
With that lovin' legal tender.
Give me money, money, money, money, money!

And if they ever plant trees of e pluribus unum,
I want to be the guy that they send out to prune 'em.
Money, money, moneymoneymoneymoney....[fade]

THE MISSUS WOULDN'T APPROVE
As sung by Mel Blanc on "Greatest Hits"

I've often thought I'd like to go inside a burlesque show.
I'd get myself new glasses and I'd sit in the first row.
I'd love to see those girlies dance, but I would never go,
'Cause I know the missus wouldn't approve.

At night, I walk our dog and pass a bar called Fifi's Inn.
There's always several blondes inside who wave at me and grin.
I'd like to go inside and get a couple o' drinks of gin,
But I know the missus wouldn't approve.

Now the missus she is fun and we've had some dandy times.
We make fudge and we play cribbage every day.
But if she only knew the truth,
She would think I was uncouth.
My sinful thoughts would make her faint away.

When I'm asleep at night, I dream of girlies by the score.
I dream they chase me and I run home quick and lock the door.
I'd like to dream they caught me, but the missus would be sore.
Oh, I know the missus wouldn't approve.

Now the missus she is sweet when my conduct is just right.
When I'm good, she's never strict with me or mean.
There was just once I heard her shout.
Oh, gracious sakes, she bawled me out!
She caught me reading Esquire magazine.

At night she sits and reads to me before we go to bed,
And while I smile and nod at all the dull stuff being read,
She never knows those burlesque girls are dancing in my head.
If she did, the missus wouldn't approve.

Subject: Lyr Add: I TELL MY TROUBLES TO JOE (from Mel Blanc
From: Jim Dixon

I TELL MY TROUBLES TO JOE
As sung by Mel Blanc on "Greatest Hits"

There are times when every married man has trouble with his frau,
When some small disagreement will end up in a row.
When my wife nags and says mean things, I grab my hat and go
To that little bar on the corner where I tell my troubles to Joe.

My friend Joe he tends the bar in this nice friendly little place.
He has that bedside manner and such a pleasant face.
When my wife's on the warpath, I'll get sympathy, I know,
In that little bar on the corner where I tell my troubles to Joe.

At times when Joe has seen me sob and cry right in my beer,
He pats my hand with a nice wet rag and whispers words of cheer.
When I tell Joe of my mean wife's extreme brutality,
He looks so sad and goes, "Tsk, tsk, tsk;" he's just like a mother to me.

My friend Joe he's married too; he's got a quiet wife named Rose.
He says if she got mean, he would poke her in the nose.
If I did that, I know that I would never live to go
To that little bar on the corner where I tell my troubles to Joe.

At home, my wifie raises heck each time I spill my tea,
But down at Joe's, if I spill my beer, he says, "Have one on me!"
To show how sweet and kind he is, Joe says, "Bring your wife in,
And I'll not only buy the drinks, I'll give her a big Mickey Finn."

Joe advises me to get real tough and change my way of life,
But acting tough would sure bring the beast out in my wife.
If I got tough, she'd beat me up and then I couldn't go
To that little bar on the corner where I tell my troubles to Joe.

I have an old 45 with Mel Blanc singing "I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat" (as Tweety and Sylvester) on one side and "Yosemite Sam" on the other.
