Paying for the Blues

Here we go again
living out of the pocket
here we go again
stroking the deadlock
here we go again
buying into the crock
and cannot afford to
pay for the blues.

Goes without saying
gotta stay current
goes without saying
hundred dollar shoes
goes without saying
can’t afford to pay
for the blues.

Nickel dime dollar
more than I can swallow
enough to fill up the car
with chocolate and caviar
yes you are
hard to follow
man-boy and girlie girl
of the blues.

Down the slippery slope
breakfast in the casino
not flat not steep
laughing at our own jokes
when the slippery slope closes in
can’t afford to pay
for the blues.

Nickel dime dollar
more than I can swallow
enough to fill up the car
with chocolate and caviar
yes you are
hard to follow
man-boy and girlie girl
of the blues.
