The opening scene in the musical The Music Man involves a group of travelling
salesmen lamenting the passing of their livelihoods. They list all the
things they sell for hard cash and it goes something like this:
Cash for the merchandise, cash for the hard goods
Cash for the soft goods, cash for the fancy goods
Cash for the noggins and the piggins and the firkins
Cash for the hogsheads, casks and demijohns
Cash for the crackers and the pickles and the flypaper.
