(985) What Money Can’t Buy - Poem by Melvina Germain

You look good and you know it too
Why no one is as pretty as you
You bought yourself a new car,
Fancy clothes, going to the bar.

High heel shoes, elegant jewels
Ready to party, no hard rules
You think you’re full of class
Your money says it’s so

Always on the go, spending that money
Well just remember this honey
Money can’t buy you class, happiness or respect
Not knowing what you’re doing, be careful what you get.

    Hollywood, look out! ! Melvina has your number! !

    I am so in complete agreement with this. It is what I always tried to teach my children...that it isn't the outside, but the inside, that counts! How true this poem is! Wonderful writing, Mel....I loved this one...copies to the children, of course! !

    Mel this is wonderful string of pearls of wisdom. Money can't buy class. It can buy you all the fancy things that make you think you have it. However it is normally the people who have nothing who have more class than those who are rich. Wonderful words my friend. Top marks and thanks for sharing them my friend.
