Money Box

"...and your cash ran out, so you have to drive old crocks"NAVIGATION through the minefield of personal finance with the likes of Vincent Duggleby, Louise Botting, Frances McDonald and Paul Lewis, less notable for its monetary scam-spotting than for its quite gloriously demented interest-rate-barbershop theme song ‘Money Matters’, provided by none other than Instant Sunshine. That wry ‘old money’ wordplay in full:

“You may have money to spare, to loan or to lend
Accounts that you share, or squander or spend
Or cash you are saving stuffed inside some socks
Financial review is long overdue
Don’t let money stew, with profit in view
What you must do is tune to a-Money Box!”

    First line’s a little sketchy, but the last two I’m pretty certain of.
