Once I built a railroad, made it run,
Made it race against time.
Once I build a railroad, now it’s done.
Brother, can you spare a dime?

E. Y. "Yip" Harburg (1896-1981) American lyricist [Edgar Yipsel Harburg, b. Isidore Hochberg]
“Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?,” in the musical New Americana (1932)
