It's So Nice to Be Rich is a song sung by Agnetha Fältskog for the soundrack of the 1983 Swedish film P & B. The song was not included on Agnetha's 1975 album Eyes of a Woman, the first time the track appeared on an album was on Agnetha's 1996 compilation album My Love, My Life.

History Edit

The song was written by actor and comedian Hans Alfredson and jazz musician and pianist Gunnar Svensson. It was produced and arranged by Rutger Gunnarsson, engineered by Lennart Östlund and recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.

The single Edit

It's So Nice to Be Rich was released as a single in Sweden in December 1983 and it reached number 8 on the Swedish singles chart in February 1984. It was the only Agnetha Fältskog single to chart in Sweden in 1984. The B-side P & B was also featured in the movie.

Alternative version Edit

The version of It's So Nice To Be Rich included on Agnetha's compilation album That's Me in 1998 is a previously unreleased edit in mono, sourced from the movie P & B, as the stereo master tape seems to be lost forever so a vinyl rip of the single was used for the 2005 remaster of Wrap Your Arms Around Me.

Agnetha Fältskog - It's So Nice to Be Rich

It's so nice to be rich, rich, rich, rich...


Young, smart, handsome, and rich, rich, rich, rich...
To dress up in the mink again
And swim in the pink champagne
Oh how I loathe old age, stupidity, and hunger
I prefer to be full, cleverer, and younger
Oh you old dumb bum in the ditch, snitch, snitch...
And get rich, rich, rich, rich...
Get rich, rich, rich, rich...

It's so nice to be rich, rich, rich, rich...
Young, smart, handsome, and rich, rich, rich, rich...
To dress up in the mink again
And swim in the pink champagne
Oh how I loathe old age, stupidity, and hunger
I prefer to be full, cleverer, and younger
Oh you old dumb bum in the ditch, snitch, snitch...
And get rich, rich, rich, rich...
Get rich, rich, rich, rich...

Mmm, get rich, rich, rich, rich...
