The Lyrics

My "money"is a kind that funny.
And the promissories accrue.

Where's my car? Gone from sight.
Guess the repo man towed it tonight.
I only have IOU here.

My loony friend Hy
Borrowed ten grand and skipped town: bye-by,
And I only have IOU.

I played some poker with the warden.
To lose to him's the thing to do.

Screw said, "Here,
Son, don't cry
Use this paper slip to wipe your eye.
Now it's back in the cell with Stu."
Stu: "I only have eyes for you!"
