Money can't buy happiness?

But can happiness buy money?

If in "any" kind of business:

A. If one is a cronic grouch, he will have far less customers & friends.

B If one is happy "all" of the time, he will have far more customers & friends.

C. In business, more customers spending money ..... means more money.

D Maybe time for all of us to re-evaluate our mirthful concepts of Life .... just something to maybe think about.

I totally agree that education as well as a good work ethic, if applied well should end up in success. Another thought - Model A's are like potato chips - one is never enough! starting assembly on my second A - a standard roadster.

Who ever said "Money can't buy happiness" is not shopping at the right place :-)

Sorry Chris Janson;

I ain’t rich, but I damn sure wanna be
Working like a dog all day, ain’t working for me
I wish I had a rich uncle that’d kick the bucket
And that I was sitting on a pile like Warren Buffett
I know everybody says
Money can’t buy happiness

But it could buy me an A, it could buy me a garage to store it
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me a 400A

They call me redneck, white trash and blue collar
But I could change all that if I had a couple million dollars
I keep hearing that money is the root of all evil
And you can’t fit a camel through the eye of a needle
I’m sure that’s probably true,
But it still sounds pretty cool


'Cause it could buy me a cabriolet, it could buy me an AA truck along with it
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me an A

To cruise down the boulevard
I hear the Powerball Lotto is a-sitting’ on a hundred mill
Well, that would buy me a brand new shop hose reel

And it could buy me proper tools to show it,
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,


But it could buy me another A.
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,

But it could buy me still an A
It could buy me another A
