Dollar

I only want a dollar
a dollar for myself
what I’d really like the most
is not to owe a penny
to anybody else

I wanna pay the taxman
for the welfare cheques I’ve had
pay back Mum for bail outs
when things round here got bad
pay back the composers
whose songs I’ve plagiarised
payback all the folk I’ve hurt
through cowardice and lies

I wanna have integrity
I’ve had it out with fakes
pay off all my overdraft
through any means it takes
I’ll shovel shit or pump the gas
‘cos I’m no longer proud
I wanna get this message out
as long as I’m allowed

I’ve done with male dominance
the women I’ve messed up
the drinking’s coming to an end
I’m near my final cup
I wanna pay back everyone
I’ve screwed with in my life
you can cut my dick and balls off
if you give them to my wife
Scomber

I’ve had a rough bash at strumming out a tune to go with it- vocal and guitar now at http://ccmixter.org/files/s...

Of course, if anyone wants to use the lyrics in another tune, that’s fine, and it’s attribution only licensed too :)

some more here called “The age of cocaine”, aplay on “this is the age of the train” 80s UK adverts fronted by non other than Jimmy Savile

get a job hippy stop smoking the weed
love and peace is over now the message is greed
forget about blues now its rhythm and bling
and thatcher and reagan look decidedly left wing

pay per view special with the rolling stones
ambulance chasers and the payday loans
now the old common sense is the new insane
cos this is the age
this is the age of cocaine
