50 bucks is 50 bucks!
Butch and his wife Muriel went to the state fair every year,
And every year Butch would say,
'Muriel, I'd like to ride in that helicopter'
Muriel always replied,
'I know Butch, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
And fifty bucks is fifty bucks'
One year Butch and Muriel went to the fair,
and Butch said,
'Muriel, I'm 75 years old.
If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance'
To this, Muriel replied,
"Butch that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks'
The pilot overheard the couple and said,
'Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny!
But if you say one word it's fifty dollars.'
Butch and Muriel agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.
He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,
But still not a word...
When they landed, the pilot turned to Butch and said,
'By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't.
'Well, to tell you the truth,
I almost said something when Muriel fell out,
But you know,
Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!
