Ali Velshi Connects Song Lyrics With Business

Financial experts Pink Floyd once famously sang, "Money, it's a gas." Sure, it can be, but that's certainly not the end of the story. In this clip, George throws some famous lyrics about money at CNN's business guru Ali Velshi, just to see how he'd respond.

He's on the show tonight, along with wrestler-turned-yoga instructor Trish Stratus.

On Notorious B.I.G.'s "Mo Money, Mo Problems"

"The search for more money gives you more problems. My parents live here in Toronto in the very same house that I grew up in. They still live in that house. It wasn't about getting a bigger house because other people did. It's that quest for more money, more houses, more cars and better stuff that causes you to try and keep up with the Joneses, as opposed to simply living the best you can with what you've got."

On Patsy Cline's "Poor Man's Roses"

"I still wonder whether it's not better to own whatever small shack you own, than be entirely indebted to somebody else for some house that you couldn't own."
