The Lyrics

RUNNING UP MY BILL

It really hurts me,
I suppose you know what it’s like.
I suppose you feel the way I do about it,
I suppose you hate the thought of all you are spending.
Yes, both you and me.

And if they only would
Drop the price of their goods,
And we’d be better off with offers.
I’m running out of time,
I’m running up my bill,
I’m running out of money.
Hey, if only they would, oh…

They just try and fleece you
By keeping all their prices high,
Well aware they take you to the cleaners,
Ooh, they’re as mean as anyone.

Do they really think of the heartache caused?
To them we don’t matter do we?

Hey,
Both you and me
Both you and me agree we’re not happy.

And if they only would
Drop the price of their goods,
And we’d be better off with offers.
I’m running out of time,
I’m running up my bill,


I’m running out of money.
Hey, if only they would, oh…

Hey,
Both you and me,
Both you and me agree we’re not happy.

Come now mister, come now mister,
Let us come to some arrangement now.
Oh please now mister, please now please now help me,
Let’s arrange for a discount somehow.

And if they only would
Drop the price of their goods,
And we’d be better off with offers.
I’m running out of time,
I’m running up my bill,
I’ve got problems…
