I heard the old Beatle song: Can’t Buy Me Love” this morning and I thought perfect! This simple little ditty says a lot about a number of things that I care about: love; the importance of things that money cannot buy like true belonging, friendship, community, connection; my dislike of the artificial contrived value of money created by an ever-increasing, powerful and unfair economic system.

a symbol of love

As a reminder here are the lyrics:

“Can’t buy me love, love

Can’t buy me love

 

I’ll buy you a diamond ring my friend

If it makes you feel alright

I’ll get you anything my friends

If it makes you feel all right

‘Cause I don’t care too much for money

For money can’t buy me love

 

I’ll give you I’ve got to give

If you say you love me too

I may not have a lot to give

But what I’ve got I’ll give to you

I don’t care too much for money

For money can’t buy me love

 

Can’t buy me love

Everybody tells me so

Can’t buy me love

No, no, no

 

Say you don’t need no diamond rings

And I’ll be satisfied

Tell me that you want the kind of things

That money just can’t buy

I don’t’ care too much for money

Money can’t buy me love”

 

Say no more.
