Good Deal (1992)

I come to buy! I come to buy!
To better goods I steer!
Regard me with a happy eye;
I come to buy! I’m here!

“Welcome then, new customer,
We both shall profit, see?
Such perfect things I have for you,
If you have gold for me.”

I’ve gold, indeed, and silver, too;
My wallet rings and rings!
And I will trade all that I’ve made
If you will trade those things.

“You have enough, you’ve got great stuff;
I am so glad to sell.”
And I to buy, to have the goods
That all my wants do tell.

“Shake hands, shake hands; you are my friend.”
And you are mine, agreed.
I came to buy; you came to sell;
What better good, indeed!
