[The O'Jays:
For The Love Of Money]

Money, money, money, money

Money

Money, money, money, money

Money

Money, money, money, money

Money

Money, money, money, money

Money

Money, money, money, money

Money

Money, money, money, money

Money

Some people got to have it

Hey, hey, hey

Some people really need it

Hey, listen to me, y'all

Do things, do things,

do things, bad things with it

You wanna do things, do things,

do things, good things with it, yeah

Uh-huh, talk about

money, money, money, money

People will steal from their mother

People will rob their own brother

People can't even walk the streets

Because they never know

who in the world they're gonna beat

For that mean, oh mean

Mean green

Almighty dollar, money

For the love of money

People will lie, Lord, they will cheat

For the love of money

People don't care

who they hurt or beat

For the love of money

A woman will sell her preclous body

For a small piece of paper,

lt carrles a lot of weight

For that mean, mean, mean, mean

Mean green

Almighty dollar

Whoa! No. Oh, no.

Tax fraud. No, no. Oh, no. Oh, no.

I mean, this is a miscalculation.

Yes, I mean,

a misunderstanding certainly.

I would even go so far as to admit

that it was bad judgement.

It could be really bad judgement

but it's certainly not tax fraud.

We need to meet with you and your client

at his office tomorrow at 10.00.

All right. We'll be there. 10.00.

Good. Otherwise warrants get issued.

Property gets attached.

Everyone gets very cranky.

Well, we don't want cranky, do we?

No. We don't.

Sleep well, Mr Lachman.

We'll see you tomorrow. 10.00.

[d Sarah Vaughan: Cheek To Cheek]

Heaven, l'm in heaven

And my heart beats

so that l can hardly speak

And l seem to find

the happiness l seek

When we're out together

danclng cheek to cheek

- Thank you.

- Well, this is our big night.

Yes, it is.

You work the girls

and I'll work the boys.

Sounds great. See you soon.

- Not soon enough.

- Oh!

- La-la-la.

- Oh, Caroline. Mwah.

- Mwah-mwah.

- Oh, Caroline.

- What a fabulous look, as usual.

- Oh, thank you.

Ten years. Can you believe it?

It's easy to believe.

It's just a little tough to admit.

I'm just glad someone's

happily married. Even if it isn't mol.

Oh, honey.

I still can't believe you haven't traded

in Brad for one of those hot new models.

Oh, sweetheart.

You never trade in a classic.

- Oh, meow.

- Oh.

- They're so happy.

- I'm so jealous.

[Men laugh]

lmagine, if you will, a mecca,

where people from all over the world

can partake in a celebration

of miracles.

We will lift their souls...

while we lighten their wallets.

[All laugh]

Ladies and gentlemen, behold...

the Holyland.

[chorus] Hallelujahl Hallelujahl

This is amazing, isn't it?

A theme park inspired by God Himself.

[All laugh]

Brad, darling, look who I found.

Your Honour.

It's a thrill to have you here.

- And it's a pleasure to be here.

- Thank you.

And my favourite attorney.

I owe you one, buddy.

You sure do.

All right. May I continue?

Let me take you on a journey.

Step this way.

All right.

Now. Welcome to the Holyland.

Check it out. Bedouin Breakfast.

You gotta love it.

What is this,

a sell job or an anniversary party?

For our Jewish guests,

Torah, Torah, Torah: The Waterslide.

For our Japanese guests,

Tora, Tora, Tora: The Waterslide.

[laughs] Look. Water lnto Winery.

And what a great year for wine. Mm. One.

My favourite attraction. Here it is.

The Burning Bush.

Twice a night,

we light up the skies with this.

[Screams]

Mr Sexton, not only

have you no respect for religion,
