Text heard on Sample:
A man has got to have somebody near who knows when he’s wrong
but likes him all the same. And if you’ll come with me I won’t
be wrong anymore for I’ll be lucky.
When you’ve got enough money then you can’t be wrong any more.
You’re right because the money says you’re right, and I’ll have a
lot of money and you’ll be the prettiest girl in all the world.
And then I’ll be proud around Frisco with you on my arm, Katey,
And all the people turning round to look at us!

Text by Jack Beeson adapted from the play by William Saroyan.
