Old men, young men, take ’em as they come,
Harbor rats and alley cats and every type of scum,
Poor men, rich men, leaders of the land,
See them with their trousers off, they’re never quite as grand.
All it takes is money in your hand!

Alain Boublil (b. 1941) French musical theatre lyricist and librettist
Les Misérables, “Lovely Ladies” [music by Claude-Michel Schönberg] (1980) [tr. Herbert Kretzmer (1985)]
