We're in the $$$!

 Danced in 1980's 42nd Street by
Lee Roy Reams and company,
and sung by Karen Prunczik, Wanda Richert and Ginny King,
We're in the Money was a production number and a half,
danced in gold costumes, on gold "coins".

 The song actually debuted in Golddiggers of 1933,
where it was introduced by Ginger Rogers (below)
and with much BIGGER coins...
well, it WAS worth more back then.
Harry Dubin did the melody, and Al Dubin the words
and, of course, that signature Busby Berkeley choreography!
Besides Ginger,
it starred Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, and Joan Blondell.
Pre-code Warner Brothers...ooh, la la!
