The Lyrics

Dude tries to ask his financially secure but frugal pal for a little money. Enjoy
I need a loan, mate, don't be a cheapskate
I'll pay you back, mate, so just cough the money up (ooh-ooh)
Haven't asked you this before, so you can't lack trust
Don't be a cheapskate, buddy, give the money up (ooh-ooh)
I need some dough, mate, don't be a cheapskate
Do a good deed, mate, and lend me a couple bucks (ooh-ooh)
That's not much, it's less than four, don't be a tightwad
You're such a cheapskate, buddy, what's wrong with two bucks?

Just cough up the bucks, it's so rude no-ot to
I've dealt with this crap before and I'm quite sick of it dude
You won't give up dough when we order tacos
Why are you so tight with your cash? Don't hoard bucks
Bucks, bucks, bucks, bucks, rarely see you use bucks
Whether it's for food, fun or essentials, you shun
Any excess spendin', I'm just stunned (stunned)
At how you haven't so far become bankrupt (what)
Clearly, you've got some huge savin's (yeah-eah-eah-eah)
Can't lie here, man, I crave it (yeah yeah)
Your spendin' tips, want 'em, but you won't show 'em
Just like the two dollars that I want from you (ooh-ooh)

Come on, what's the deal, mate? You're such a cheapskate
Let up, for Pete's sake, I just need a couple bucks (ooh-ooh)
It's just sad you don't wanna help out your best bud
That's what I am, mate, come on, give the money up (ooh-ooh)
I need this loan, mate, don't be a cheapskate
Pay you back quick, mate, won't you cough the money up? (ooh-ooh)
I'm sure that you can afford two dollar coins, bud
But you're a cheapskate, so I doubt you'll give 'em up

Gigantic cheapskate
Sure you're drownin' in green
Cough the money up (you basta-a-a-ard)
You mise-e-er
Such a big cheapskate
Why are you so stingy?
Just a couple bucks

Bargain, bud, what stuff can I do fo-or you?
I could give you a back rub and massage your temples too
Could be your bedroom cleaner, not a mind reader
Just tell me please what you want from me, bud
Stuff, stuff, stuff, stuff, could give you lots of stuff
Choc'late bars? A shit-ton, spread out for a whole month
I know that you don't want a huge gut (gut)
I'm considerate, that's worth a couple bucks (bucks)
Are there any games you're playin' (yeah-eah-eah-eah)?
Online games? There, I'll pay it (yeah yeah)
I'm low on cash, know it, I.O.U. somethin'
Give me a clue, how do I get cash from you-ou-ou-ou-ou-ou-ou? (ooh-ooh)

What is your deal, mate? You're such a cheapskate
Is there some info that you're not offerin' up?
Some big reason that you're hoardin' more than before
Somethin's amiss, mate, I can tell that somethin's up
What's goin' on, mate, what's blocked your rebates?
Not that you're known for them, but this is a tad much
Normally it just takes four asks, then you cough up
But now your cheapskate ways are really friggin' tough

Tell me, si-i-ir (spill it, si-ir)
Know you're a cheapskate
But this is beyond greed
I know somethin's up (I smell somethin' fishy no-o-ow)
What's that, si-i-ir (ca-a-an't be, si-ir)?
You've gone full cheapskate
Cause you're out of money?
Knew somethin' was up (what the hell should I do no-o-ow?)

Okay, I can understand that reason, buddy
Too aware of that broke fee-eeling
So how did you lose all of your money?
You're well known for your smart fiscal dealings
I've never known you to lack your funding
Born-with cash and lott'ry wi-innings
What, did your house just get robbed or something?
That's what happened? Whoops, now I feel stupid (ooh-ooh)

Apologies, mate, for all the "cheapskate"s (sorry for that, mate, callin' you chea-ea-eapskate)
Was not aware, mate, of your current problem, sucks (ooh-ooh)
Tell you what, I know someone else who's made of bucks (a rich prat, make him pay u-u-us)
Let's go bug him, mate, make him cough the money up (ooh-ooh)
Shouldn't be hard, mate, to get that cheapskate (we'll get that cheapskate's hoard)
To give us rebates, here's my plan to trip him up (ooh-ooh)
When he sees you in trouble, callin' him Scrooge, bud
Should make that cheapskate give up quite a lot of bucks

Dunno what the guy needed that two bucks for. Maybe he was just short of cash to buy a sandwich. Maybe he owed money to the mob. Nobody knows...or cares all that much.
