"Brother Can You Spare a Dime?" as written by and Jay Gorney E. Y. Harburg....
Once I built a railroad, made it run
Made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it's done
Brother, can you spare a dime

Once I built a tower, to the sun
Bricks, rivet, and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Brother, can you spare a dime

Once in cocky suits
Gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee Doodle-dom
Half a million boots, they went
Slogging through Hell
And I, I was a kid with a drum

Say, don't you remember
They called me Al
It was Al all the time
Say, don't you remember
I'm your pal
Buddy, can you spare a dime
