"We just need your money, money, money".....for Kalapuya Jogathon

Jaycoby's school is having a Jogathon Fundraiser on October 6th. Pledges can be done per lap (with a maximum noted) or a flat donation. Jaycoby will be jogging for 15 minutes. Laps are tallied and recorded and then the students receive a certificate with the number of laps they completed. Then they collect their pledge money and turn it in by October 13th. There are some small prizes that students are eligible to win when they turn in their pledge money. Jaycoby is hoping to win the Jamba Juice or Olive Garden gift card.
He gave me specific instructions when we were discussing how he could ask for his pledges. This is what he said: "Mom, I will do a video of music or something. I don't want you to send it to the workers at the berry farm though. Just Grammie, Mema, dad and Grandma." Got it. I promise. I won't be sending this to the workers at the berry farm :-)
It took several tries, but Jaycoby finally got the song the way he wanted it. Putting his school name into the song was far too hard, so he had to leave it out.
This is his song for the Kalapuya Jogathon. IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED IN PLEDGING MONEY, PLEASE CONTACT ME.

His song is his own remake of Jessie J's song "Price Tag"-

Actual Lyrics:
It's not about the money, money, money,
We don't need your money, money, money.
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the price tag.
Ain't about the (ha!) cha-ching cha-ching.
Ain't about the (yeah!) ba-bling ba-bling,
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the price tag.
