The Money Song Lyrics


by . From Avenue Q.


Nicky:
Help the homeless!
Help the homeless!
Ooh! Hey Princeton!

Give me a quarter!
Here in my hat!
Come on, Princeton!
Itís as easy as that!
Helping others brings you
Closer to God.
So give me a quarter...

Princeton:
I donít have any change.

Nicky:
Hmmm....okay.

Give me a dollar.

Princeton:
Thatís not what I meant.

Nicky:
Give me a five.

Princeton:
Are you kidding?

Nicky:
The more you give.
The more you get.
Thatís being alive!
All Iím asking you
Is to do what
Jesus Christ would do.
Heíd give me a quarter,
Why donít you?

Princeton:
All right, all right, here you go.

Nicky:
Ahh, thanks!

Princeton:
Take care.
Whoa!

Nicky:
Whatís the matter?

Princeton:
I feel generous!
I feel compassionate!

Nicky:
You do?

Princeton:
Yeah! I feel like a new person - a good person!
Helping other people out makes you feel fantastic!

Nicky:
Thatís what Iíve been trying to tell you-

Princeton:
All this time Iíve been running around thinking
about me, me, me - and where has it gotten me!
Iím gonna do something for someone else!

Nicky:
Me?

Princeton:
No - Kate! Iím going to raise the money to build that
stupid Monster School sheís always talking about!

Give me your money!

Nicky:
What?

Princeton:
I need it for Kate!

Nicky:
I need it to eat!

Princeton:
Come on, Nicky!

Nicky:
Aww, get lost!

Princeton:
Itíll make you feel great!

Nicky:
So would a burger!

Princeton:
When her dream comes true,
Itíll all be partly
Thanks to you
So give me your money!

Nicky:
Iíd like to, but I canít.

Princeton:
Give me your money!

Nicky:
Iíd like to, but I need it!

Princeton:
Give me your money!

Nicky:
Iíd like to, but Iím homeless!
I canít! I need it! Iím homeless!
I canít! I need it! Iím homeless!
I canít! I need it! Iím homeless!
Okay, here you go.

Princeton:
Thank you!

Nicky:
Suddenly,
I am feeling
Closer to God.
Itís time to stop begging
Itís time to start giving!
What can I give to Rod?

Something heíll like so much heíll take me back.
Ooh, I know! Iíll find him a boyfriend!

Princeton:
Thatís the spirit!

Both:
When you help others,
You canít help helping yourself!
When you help others,
You canít help helping yourself!

Gary Coleman:
Hey boys, whatís the hat for?

Nicky:
Ooh, weíre collecting money!

Princeton:
Itís for Kate! Weíre raising money to help build her dream school!

Give us your money!

Nicky:
Youíll be glad that you did!

Gary Coleman:
Thatís just what my parents told me
When I was a kid.

Shit.

Nicky:
But giving feels so great...

Gary Coleman:
And I bet it wouldnít hurt
Your chances with Kate.

Princeton:
Well, that too.

Gary Coleman:
Iíll give you a dollar.

Princeton:
Youíre a gentleman
And a scholar.

Christmas Eve:
We so happy! We just exchange all your wedding gifts for cash!

Brian:
Honey, donít tell THEM that!

Christmas Eve:
We get about 2,000 bucks!

Brian:
Uh, yeah, so - thanks, everybody!

Christmas Eve:
We rich!

Princeton:
Give us your money!

Nicky:
Give us your money!

Gary Coleman:
Give us your goddamn money!

Princeton:
Give us the dough!

Nicky/Gary Coleman
Give us the dough!

Princeton/Nicky/Gary Coleman
Weíre raising money
For a Monster School
But weíve got a ways to go.

Princeton:
Sounds like youíve
Got money to burn

Nicky:
And itís not like money
That you had to earn.

Princeton/Nicky/Gary Coleman:
So give us your money -

Christmas Eve:
A monster school?

Brian:
Sounds like a good cause.

Christmas Eve:
Give me your wallet.

Princeton:
Oh my gosh! I donít know how to thank you guys.
I mean, Kate will be so grateful!
That kind of money is such a great start...

Gary Coleman:
Yeah, $15.

Princeton:
$15?

Christmas Eve:
Every little bit help.

Nicky:
Looks like weíre gonna have to ask MORE people!


All:
Hey!
Give us your money!
All that youíve got!
Just fork it on over...

Gary Coleman:
Or some puppets
Will get shot!

Princeton:
Hey!

All:
Itís time to pass the hat

Gary Coleman:
And thereís nothing you can do Ďbout that

All:
So give us your money!
Give us your money!
Give us your money!
When you help others,
You canít help helping yourself!
When you help others,
You canít help helping yourself!
Every time you
Do good deeds
Youíre also serving
Your own needs.
When you help others,
You canít help helping yourself!
When you give
To a worthy cause
Youíll feel as jolly
As Santa Clause.
When you help others,
You canít
Help
Helping yourself!
