The Lyrics

By the time I get my paycheck I'll be starving
Cause there won't by any food left in the house
I'll be stealing pennies from my little coffee can
And taking back my cheese from the mouse

By the time I get my paycheck I'll be walking
Cause my car doesn't run too well on fumes
It sputters and toxic clouds come floating
From the muffler, in poisonous plumes

By the time I make my deposit I'll be overdrawn
So the bank will siphon $30 from my account
And I'll sigh cause now the game starts all over
I try to tell myself that it's worthwhile
And I tell myself to smile

Just how I feel after waiting 6 months (so far) for the lawyer & the Family Court to get around to approving a property settlement with my ex, and then for the Super Fund to get around to splitting the super so I can apply for an Allocated Pension. Though I'm now having to live on borrowed money, you got me to laugh at it all! Great!
