Tattoos in Mayberry

Hooray, just  like the Shakespear play,
you look so God-awful good,
much a doin' nothin all day.

You strike such a curious cameo pose.
Dancin' like Li'l Egypt,
At  all the rightest wrong shows.
Tearing up all them big dance floors
and curlin everyone's toes.
Cuz, you're so solid,
so solidly
nouveau riche.

It takes more than the village
to keep your dough hid.
Your ego's in bed and romancin' your id.
You're way too much for us other kids,
you're truly 
quite solidly nouveau riche,

Got away clean
with the biggest of scores.
When a blemish erupted,
they sealed your pores.
haul the old stuff out
Shop the new stuff in
Bearer bonds are your next of kin

You really lit the match
Sittin'  on high upon
your monastery of scratch.
We're all well paid to to make sure  your plans 
blast off without a hitch.
The only one's workin' hard are your accountants
compiling dividends
and interest on your deposit slips.
You're  richer than the richest of the rich.
Step up to the winners circle
at the end of the big game.
you don't work up a sweat for glory
Because you don't have to play.
You're so filthy stinkin' 
nuveau riche.
A world class shaker and a mover.
You outshadoboxed
J. Edgar Hoover.
You're just too solid.
Richie Riche..

When your ex-beau
was found 
bloated and blue
Face down in your
heart-shaped
 Art-Deco
 swimming pool
you didn't even flinch.
you just floated a check.
Cuz, you're bolder and blonder and smarter than heck.
 If the law should ever catch up with you,
you'd simply shift gears,
that's what you do.
Your court case is long on the dockets.
Postponed indefinitely
due to your deepest of pockets...
Strike another curious, though spurious, pose.
I like what your Doc did with the bridge of your nose.
and how perfectly your overbite he adjusted
Your posse' took heat,
so you wouldn't get busted.
Calling all available cash machines,
In thigh high, snake skin  boots,
and faux, ripped, blue  jeans
First  responder on the scene.
Your pit crew gasses up another funny car.
pink slip goes to the new racing star. 
drinks all around on your tab at the bar.
Now that you're muffin stuffin
truffle suckin .
bronco bustin
diamond encrusted
fairy dusted
Ill begotten
spoiled rotten
Euber
Idle
most entitled
Deedle daidle
Bernie Madoff
Michael Milken
Rumplestiltskin
specials blinkin
birdie's sinkin
champagne
glasses all a clinkin
filthy
stinkin
nouveau riche'
