Bills bills bills, pile up every day.
Bills bills bills, got no cash to pay.
Bills bills bills, they never go away.
What is a man to do?
I’m in the red, I’ve got no green,
And I’m feeling so blue.
I ain’t what you’d call a spendthrift.
Don’t have fancy tastes.
Car that gets from A to B.
A roof and a bed and a color TV.
But I never get out from under.
Always deep in debt.
Every dollar that I earn is gone ‘fore I cash my check,
Some day I’ll dynamite the mailbox.
Move to a new zip code.
Fall in love with an heiress,
With a basement filled with gold. But meantime these….
