WEDNESDAY CLUB - Kingston trio - Greenback dollar

MIDWEEK CRISIS, your piggy bank is empty, come to  WEDNESDAY CLUB we've got the Kingston Trio and they are giving away plenty greenbacks 

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)

Lend us a quid mate!

Heartily agree with your perspective, sir. Never had a credit card, myself, though. My attitude is, if you ain't got it you can't have it. Simple. I'm prepared to admit, though, that I have, therefore, never had much! Haha! Nice version by the sometimes maligned Kingston Singers.

Well SB I do somtimes feel that is the best way and that is what my father did...if you have'nt got it you can't buy it (except for CD's)
By way found Grace outtakes and it is pretty good...if you want it let me know and I will send it by Skydrive
