If anyone could have a cynical view on the power of money it would be Jimmy Buffett."Carnival World" is a song that best describes that money is the root of everything BUT evil. You'll find the song on his 'Off To See The Lizard' album released in 1989.

"But talk is cheap

It takes money to buy your freedom

and the tax man's knockin' at your door.

Spend it while you can, money's contraband

You can take it with you when you go

Spend it while you can, before it's taken from your hand,

There's no free ride in this carnival world."
