Album: Got to Investigate Silicones (1973)

Songfacts®:

  • "False Economy" runs to 2 minutes 9 seconds, and after the overture is the third track on the album Got to Investigate Silicones, which was written by composer Hank Beebe and lyricist Bill Heyer for the General Electric Silicone Products Department's 1973 production of the same name.

    And the false economy is? Being penny wise, pound foolish. Silicones save you money in the longer run. >>
