Big money make no sound
Big money pull a million strings
Big money hold the prize
Big money weave a mighty web
Big money draw the flies

Not this time. This is simply amazing. (And thank heavens this is preserved; I found a clip from 2010 of him singing the same song, and suffice it to say the one below is the one worth remembering).
