Inspiration: Tim Eisele, author of the fabulous Backyard Arthropod Project blog, left this in a comment on another post of mine:
Well, on balance, I suppose making money by feeding the frenzy of a bunch of gold-bugs is better than supporting oneself with the other traditional pillars of the US economy - tobacco and whiskey.The version done by the Muppets and Peter Sellers above leaves out one verse ("the show is running a bit long, Peter!") which can be found here.
Thanks for the link!
And yes, I was thinking of that *exact song, specifically by those performers* when I wrote the comment.
Later, it occured to me that there's one more traditional pillar of the US economy (the one that lead directly to modern mass production) - guns!
It's scary how we think alike!
I love this song....
Elf hadn't heard it before-- I need to get more old country to the boy! (education, these days....)
