Song Description

Johnny's 40th birthday celebration is a grand one, right at the peak of boom times

Story Behind the Song

Johnny has ridden the boom to the limit, to the point where he really does believe there are easier ways to make money than work for it, an essential input to the Paper Fortune$ story

Lyrics

Paper Profits Johnny Foster

Warm welcome to my party, friends
So nice to see so many here
It?s one night in my life I?ll quaff French champers with my beer
Samantha: Absolutely

I?ve found so much good fortune,
It?s been a champion year
These boom-time days are here to stay I tell you, have no fear

Chucka: No worries Johnny, no fears at all! Boom times!

Booming profits, booming profits, booming profits make my fortune soar
Thanks to boom-time paper profits, I am going to stay rich for sure
Blooming blooming rich for sure.

Crowd: Great stuff Johnny. You deserve it pal. Tell us how it all began

I got my start being extra smart
But there?s one man I have to thank
My first big break, make no mistake, was that day in the Bank
When Ernie, welcome Ernie, pal:

Ernie: Cheers mate

How?s that five-year corporate plan?
Yes Ernie, love ya Ernie, signed up for a thousand grand

Ernie: Damned fine contract Johnny: finest I?ve ever seen!

Booming profits, booming profits, booming profits make my fortune soar
Thanks to boom-time paper profits, I am going to stay rich for sure
Blooming blooming rich for sure.

Crowd: Blooming blooming rich for sure,
Blooming blooming rich for sure,
Blooming blooming rich for sure:
Keep the good times rolling Johnny

There?s others here I?d like to thank
My wife and kids I scarcely see
The worst of which of course is what they miss not seeing me
Victor: They must miss you Johnny

But that?s life in the passing lane,
Not much of a price to pay
With easy boom-time wealth some things must wait another day

Samantha: I?m with you Johnny. Absolutely! Absolutely!

Booming profits, booming profits, booming profits make my fortune soar
Thanks to boom-time paper profits, I am going to stay rich for sure
Blooming blooming rich for sure.

Crowd: We love you Johnny, we love you

And now a word of sound advice
For men who still work nine to five
There?s smarter ways and easier days, you don?t know you?re alive

Crowd: Tell us, tell us

Take me as your example
Look at me and all my wealth
Don?t like to boast, let?s drink a toast to boom times, yeah?good health!
Crowd: Good health Johnny. Here?s cheers! Cheers! Cheers!

Booming profits, booming profits, booming profits make my fortune soar
Thanks to boom-time paper profits, I am going to stay rich for sure
Blooming blooming rich for sure.
Blooming blooming rich for sure.

Work for a living? Pigsarse!!!
