I just love philanthropy
It has been so good to me
Raising money for the whales
A million THERE, without fail.

I just love philanthropy
Clients in love with only me
All the money they do see
Except for that small handling fee.

I just love philanthropy
Mailings and phone banks are the key
Just keeping what I need for rent
(And, yeah, the mansion east of Kent).

Save the whales, save the trees,
Save Egyptian honeybees
Doesn’t matter what the cause
On their money I’ll get my paws.

I just love philanthropy
And give a lot to charity,
But no matter if they cry or moan
I’LL never give over the phone!
