The Lyrics

Saw a Dr. Phil episode about mooching, and suddenly I got this song. OK, now I'm just jamming words into a song that may not work. This is a story off a guy trying to live off his richer friend after he was orphaned since he was young.
I'll only stay with you 'til the morning
I'm only staying for a feed
I was never great on water
But now I'm swimming in my heap

For every day that I live off of you
Another dream can't be made

When you lend me something
I can't repay, alright
I could be mooching
But I'm willing to work it off, right

Please get me working
'Cause someday I am off on my own

You must be thinking [that] I'm a coward
Just to stay at home and whine about my knees
I know I've never paid for powers
I can't work out what they need [how much it costs]
I've never thought I'll live off someone
That was someone else's dream

When you lend me something
I can't repay, alright
I could be mooching
But I'm willing to work it off, right

Please get me working
'Cause someday I must find an office job
But I could be just cleaning your waste

If I'm I'm healthy, young and very sane
Why am I mooching anyways?

When you lend me something
I can't repay, alright
I could be mooching
But I'm willing to work it off, right
Please get me working

Oh, can you get me working
If you do care, all right?
Won't want me clinging
And I'm feeling oh, very obliged
Please give me something
'Cause someday I am off on my own

On my own
For a job
Cross my heart
