Any song with that title would have to be tongue-in-cheek and this one is. An old song of mine that pleads for untold wealth: Think “Money … that’s what I want” of Beatles fame

Lyrics

Quite a Pile – Glenn Reid

Intro: C, C#dim, Dm7, G, C, F, C, G,

C C#dim
V1: I’d like to clarify one thing for sure
Dm7 B7
I ain’t no two-bit troubadour, no,
C C#dim Dm7 G C, F, C, G,
It’s gonna take quite a pile to put a smile on this face.

C C#dim
V2: Don’t wanna appear like a money hound,
Dm7 B7
But here’s the truth, son, as I’ve found it.
C C#dim Dm7 G C, F, C, C7,
You’ve gotta have lots of bread to get ahead in this race.

F C
Refrain: No penny-ante games for me
E7 Am
I only play for quality stakes.
F F#dim
No half-measures and no in-betweens,
G(punch) G(punch) G(punch) G-aug
I wanna stuff my pockets till the bottom breaks.

C C#dim
V3: I wanna pay for my diversions cash on the line
Dm7 B7
I want all the love that money can buy, yeah,
C C#dim Dm7 G C
It’s gonna take quite a pile to put a smile on this face.
