The Lyrics

Re-up the limit on my Visa, please
Got declined while charging batt’ries
All my pay is blown, man I need a loan
My Lady has a made me a debtor

She don’t care how much money we’ve got to spend
Got to impress all her yuppie type friends

Every week I’m broke, I’ve been getting soaked
Her spendin’ has a made me a debtor

Well, she made me a debtor
Said she woulda died without her new Porche
Can you... help me? would you please
I need some cash back and my batt’ries endorsed

Right away, yeah

Give her a budget and she’ll go insane
One track mind to be a cash drain
All my pay is gone, I a should’ve known
Lil’ momma has a made big pauper

Well, she made me a pauper
With her shopping sprees we cannot afford
Jesus, help me, would you please
She’s got to cut back on her spending Dear Lord!

Right away, yeah

Lend me a horse pill to stomp out the pain
Man! my wife has got a mule brain
No use matching wits, I ain’t got two bits
My Lady just a broke me with fetters
My Lady just a made me a debtor

Not bad Lionel - catchy OS and concept. Don't care for 'fetters' and 'pauper', they sound a little awkward to my ear, but maybe just me. 544.
