The Lyrics

Coming out of the store
Bought some irregular shirts
Gotta gotta great deal
On this expired ham
I know this fruit has a dent
And it's begun to ferment
It was only a cent, it was only a cent
Now I'm driving 10 miles
To save a nickel on fuel
Got this cheap airline fare
We change planes in Kabul
When I'm leaving the tip
I give 15 percent
Of absolutely zip
Though it's freezing with sleet
Now, I turn off the heat
Now, saved a buck

How dare those kids selling lemonade
Not take my coupon
Frugally, seeking buy one get one free
Wrong size clothes that time forgot
Salmon that's begun to rot
But you can't beat the price I paid
Fiscally responsibly
Man I really save a lot
I'm Mr Tightwad

Coming out of the store
with secondhand underwear
Gotta gotta great deal
On toilet paper used
Before I spend any cash
First I dig through the trash
Oh that's only a rash
Oh that's only a rash
Never bought a name brand
I find Walmart upscale
Now free samples are great
If I can find them on sale
Now I'm timing your shower
And making sure all our bulbs
Are only 30 watt power
I'll take you out to eat now
If it is your treat now
Then let's go

Were you impressed with the coupon book
I brought on our date?
Shopping spree- if it's at the Dollar Tree
Driving past a parking spot
If quarters go inside a slot
Zero is the price I'll pay
My family is leaving me
Boy that should save me a lot
I'm Mr. Tightwad

I'm thrifty
I'm thrifty
I'm thrifty
