The Lyrics

When money’s tight, I do what isn’t right:
go to a loan shark and borrow.
The deal that I’ve made means that he must paid
on time, or I’ll feel sorrow.

Borrow, borrow, borrow, borrow is what has become of me.
Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow, sorrow, if he don’t get his money.

Out of his sight I can’t get, day or night
either today or tomorrow.
He gives me a week
to pay up, or his pique
will cause him to seek me…then sorrow!

Borrow, borrow, borrow, borrow, because I needed money.
Borrow, sorrow. A borrower is what one should never be.
Borrow, sorrow; borrow, sorrow; borrow, sorrow.
