We're in the money.
We're in the money.
We've got a lot of what it takes to get along.
We're in the money.
The skies are sunny.
Old man Depression, you are through.
You've done us wrong.

We never see a headline about a breadline today.
And when we see the landlord, we can look that guy right in the eye.
We're in the money.
Come on, my honey,
Let's spend it, lend it, send it rolling along.

Gone are my blues and gone are my tears.
I've got good news to shout in your ears.
The silver dollar has returned to the fold.
With silver you can turn your dreams to gold.

We're in the money.
We're in the money.
We've got a lot of what it takes to get along.
We're in the money.
The skies are sunny.
Old man Depression, you are through.
You've done us wrong.

We never see a headline about a breadline today.
And when we see the landlord, we can look that guy right in the eye.
We're in the money.
Come on, my honey,
Let's spend it, lend it, send it rolling along.
