If I got me a wealthy man

I'd fool around and have a ball"

"Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they're O.K.
If they don't give me proper credit
I just walk away
They can beg and they can plead
But they can't see the light, that's right
'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right, 'cause we are
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl"
— Madonna, "Material Girl"
"There may come a time when a hard-boiled employer
Thinks you're awful nice
But get that ice or else no dice
He's your guy when stocks are high
But beware when they start to descend
It's then that those louses go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girl's best friend"

Make you want all of her love.

Make you buy cars
Make you cut cards
Make you wish you never met her at all."

If she's willing to please

Beg and steal and lie and cheat.

"Zsa Zsa really is from an unrelatable period of antiquity. After a half hour of nonstop chatter about the benefits of senior citizen fitness, there is only one mention of self esteem and none about health. Zsa Zsa Gabor's entire philosophy on life seems to be wrapping your legs around it until it buys you a house. Exercise is only good for two things: making ozzer vomen jealous and fucking zeir husbands...My favorite advice came when she said gently marching in place was 'a vonderful vay to strengzen your legs for an unfaisful husband, lover, lawyer, doctor ...' It's a special kind of woman whose main goal in a workout is to be a better lay for her lawyer and doctor."
