The Lyrics

I got my pay.
I am deep in debt, encumbered.
I need a loan.
Browsing thru the windows of the stores at clothes
For a fresh new wardrobe, glad the stores aren't closed.
I had to shop.
I am a-buyin'.

She's not tall.
That tan skirt seems so flighty.
I aim to please my mate.
My shopping list is endless, yet I don't ask why.
I'm after all the items I can buy.
I had to shop.
I am a-buyin'.

I bought some gloves.
Well, I need some shirts and shorts.
I'm feeling kinda tremor-y.
I need some stuff for slumber, to keep my love alive.
If I'd never shopped, my lover'd lose her drive.
I had to shop.
I am a-buyin'.

She likes to cook.
It's some crockery I'm selecting.
And some real food for her larder.
Need to clean my room, so I buy a broom.
I clutch this stuff, I'm really on a spree.
I had to shop.
I am a-buyin'.

And I shop till in pain.
And I'm buyin' till I cry.
