KINGSTON TRIO - Greenback Dollar(1963)
I love this song you just can't help but like it, it is simple straightforward and the Kingston Trio sing it with lots of passion. The only trouble is, it is a little to CLOSE to home.
|BLOODY CREDIT CARDS!|
I remember the first one I got in 1972, an Access card, that was the start of the downfall, then there was the Barclay Card, then a Master card, then a Visa card, American Express. I have had them all. I would get another one to pay the maxed out ones. Then I remortgaged to pay them all of. Then the cycle started again.
But like the song says, I didn't give a damn, as long as I had 'a bottle of brandy and a song' and as long as I could could pay them back. I have no regrets, what's the point, it is only when I retired I wish I had been a little more careful, but what the hell, I have been round the world and did it when I was young enough to enjoy it. Anyway how much do you need? How much can you eat? How much can you drink? (well not so much nowadays)...I need a bigger hard drive 'tho.
I always remember my father saying if he won the pools when he was retired that the money would be no use to him. He had his mates, his family, he was happy in his home, he was content. Apart from a better car there was no need for drastic change at his age. He would have given any money he won to his family. (Shame he did not win)
