: Hi Everyone,

: I'm working on a English paper and just need some definitions of the phrase "money makes the world go round" what different interpetations/meanings people have for this particular phrase......any at all. What ever help anyone could give would be really appreciated.

LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND - "The major motivation for all human activity is the search for love. The words are found in an anonymous French song, 'C'est l'amour, l'amour, l'amour, Que fait le monde A la ronde.' First cited in 'David' . Recorded in Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' ." From Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996). Page 223.

A variation is used in a song in the musical Cabaret (movie version,1972):
Money makes the world go around
The world go around
The world go around
Money makes the world go around
It makes the world go 'round.
