They say that money can’t buy happiness. I wonder who “they” are in this saying. I have to say that having money can make one happier.
Money can’t buy it, baby
Sex can’t buy it, baby
Drugs can’t buy it, baby
You can’t buy it, baby
I’m going to flip scrip on Ms. Lennox. I am going to reach into the heart of a boy that grew up without money; without happiness.
Money can buy it. Sex can buy it. Drugs can buy it. You can buy it.
Money can buy happiness in the sense of not stressing about how to pay rent or buy groceries. Sex can buy happiness buy providing validation to a person’s self. Drugs can buy the mental calmness that eludes oneself. You can buy all of these things for me.
But buying these won’t make me happy. Money won’t guarantee happiness. Sex won’t guarantee validation. Drugs won’t guarantee a better mind. You won’t guarantee a happier me.
There is a world of difference between can/can’t and will/won’t. That distinction is critical.
