The Lyrics

Well I know 'bout your brother, I see it all too clear
You stop by for a visit, and he guzzles all my beer
He's eating all my pizza, smoking my cigars
He sits down at my TV and watches it for hours

And he's asking for some money, he says that he is broke
When he's finished all my alcohol, then he drinks up all my Coke
He's talking on my cell phone, my minutes are all gone
He heads out in my Pontiac and he won't return 'til dawn

There's something wrong

'Cause I am fairly certain
That I am being used
But you are so voluptuous
And I am so confused
I really want you with me
At least for another day
I don't know if it's worth the price, it's worth the price
The price that I must pay

Everyone keeps asking, what's he done today?
He pocketed my Visa and bought a new toupee
Then he hocked my camera and played casino games
I've nothing left of value and only you to blame

Will it ever change?

'Cause I am fairly certain
That something isn't right
But then I see you walking
In Aston fishnet tights
You get me so distracted
I don't know what to say
But is it really worth the price, it's worth the price
The price that I must pay

But I'm thinking it over anyway
I'm thinking it over anyway

When I complain
'Bout your rotten bro
Your lower lip
It trembles so
I lose my head
And I forgo
To have him pay
Back what he owes
There's so much he owes

'Cause I am fairly certain
That this has gotta end
How it got to this point
I cannot comprehend
So listen to me darlin'
When you come by today
Please tell him not to tag along, to tag along
Just have him stay away

But you're bringing him over, anyway
You're bringing him over, anyway

And I am fairly certain
That you have got me whipped

DKTOS, Rex (and it looks like no one else does either) but this reads so well I'll trust your pacing and give you 5s. This could be subtitled "The Cost Of Getting Some"...lovely imagery that I can relate to. Great!

Thanks, Kristof. This is one of those songs that was very popular for a few weeks back in the 90's - if I had posted it then everyone would have known it. And thanks for the subtitle - I wish I had thought of that. :-)
