ohh mighty dollar

for the love of money / people will rob their own brother

for the love of money/ people will sell out completely

for the love of money/ people will abort their own family

for the love of money/ people will claim a territory

for the love of money/ people will give you false glory 

"Ohh mighty Dollar "

    you should know this is a song that was a hit from the 70's. I just changed a few lyrics. The original is not me.

    So true! I am glad I grew up without much money, it taught me to love people not things.
