The Lyrics

Ever have someone who always tries to hit you up for a loan even though both of you know he never pays you (or anyone else) back?
Loan me a twenty
(You're dumb, I'm lying to you)
(Ho hum...that's nothing new)
(I enjoy f*cking with you)
(Loan me a twenty)

Loan me a twenty (You know you won't get it back)
'Cause I need some cigarettes (my promises; not worth "Jack")
Loan me a twenty (I'm laughing behind your back)
And I swear I won't forget (don't take that to the bank)

There goes my twenty, kiss it good-bye
Gone with that liar, I sit and sigh...
I'm such a dummy, don't know wh-y-y; loaned him the twenty
(So dumb, was lying, it's true; for him that's nothing new)
(he's laughing at me, boo-hoo, loaned him that twenty, loaned him that twenty)

Loaned him a twenty (he promised to pay it back)
'Cause he promised he would pay (his promises ain't worth "Jack")
Good-bye, my twenty (right now he's laughing at me)
Yes, good-bye, I won't see you (does money grow on trees?)

Maybe tomorrow he'll pay it back
Who am I kidding? Of that there's no chance
He's such a fla-a-a-ake, I can just hear him say
"Don't have your twenty (Too bad for you, boo-hoo)
Ain't got your twenty, don't have your twenty"

alvin, yeah, that's been happening to me a lot, too. Thanks! Thinking of doing somemore of "RoyBoy Orb's" stuff. You know, if his last name had one more "n" in it it would be an anagram for my last name...what that exactly means thoroughly escapes me...probably absolutely zilcho...

Michael P - Thank you kindly. Tell AJ for me that he shouldn't have f*cked around the Indians the way he did.
