a new 'project': "making money" (episodic lyrics)

I'm sure I told you about what I call 'episodic lyrics'. It's a lyrical genre that I cultivate. It means using a generic subject in the chorus and writing verses that support the chorus but otherwise are unconnected. Obviously, I've written a few 'episodic' lyrics or songs (in bold print) in the past:

assembled masturbators
bang, you're out
giants fall
in the blink of an eye
size matters
some go too soon

Now I intend to start a new project in this manner. The title od the (song or just) text will be making money.

The verses will feature different approaches to make money. I'm thinking of sceneries like these:

- a man at midnight (in the dead of night) in a dark corner, hidden face, crowbar, hooded jacket, dark colors (burglar)
- a lady in flimsy clothes, high heel boots, bare legs in the cold, at the crossroads (prostitute)

and another one that should refer to a more 'ordinary' approach. Maybe I'll use my favorite example (and subject of scorn): a banker. But I haven't decided on this yet.

My provisional notes with regard to the chorus read:
what are you doing there hiding in the dark / posing in the light
what do you think
I'm making money (the only way I know)

I'll keep you updated how I'm progressing - my blog is about "lyrics in progress", you see...

Stay tuned!
