The Lyrics

#24. A song for poor, hungry teenagers.
Me and all my friends
We need something to eat
We're always getting hungry and
There's an Arby's down the street

Now I've spent every dime I've ever earned
And I don't get paid til friday
But I feel like I should eat some lunch
I hope that it is my day

So I keep digging, digging in the couch for change
I keep on digging, digging in the couch for change

It's hard to find the quarters
When there's crumbs in all the corners
So I keep digging, digging in the couch for change

Now if I had all hour
To search the furniture and more
I could have given them some business
Got some curly fries and more
But when my friends need some provision
If I'm broke they'll leave me out
Cuz when your stomach says to listen, oh
You will give in to its shout

That's why I'm digging, digging in the couch for change
I keep on digging, digging in the couch for change

Though they have time to spare
To make them wait just isn't fair
So I keep on digging, digging in the couch for change

So I'm still digging, digging in the couch for change
I keep on digging, digging in the couch for change
Some day my concentration
Is gonna give way to frustration
But I'll keep on digging, digging in the couch for change
I keep on digging, digging in the couch for change
Digging in the couch for change
Digging in the couch for change
Digging in the couch for change
