The Lyrics

what a drag it is when they're sold

tickets cost a lot today
just to hear some music play
mother makes folks overpay...she won't back down
if a big act's on the bill...then the price will make ya ill
its too much they're gonna sell for
cause my mother is a scalper
and she always gets her way...makes a bundle every day

folks won't come to her, they say
lest there ain't no other way
payin' up to fifteen hundred is a drag
mama buys the seats that rate...then she sits around and waits
its too much they're gonna sell for
cause my mother is a scalper
and the prices she displays simply take your breath away

lady, please...need four of these
right on the floor...though they may score
what a drag it is when they're sold

and she plays this game each day
waitin' patiently for prey
folks just don't appreciate the cash required
they could choose to pass mom by
but that show is on their minds
its too much they're gonna sell for
cause my mother is a scalper
and she'll help ya out alright, but your wallet will grow light

lady, please...why must you squeeze
want in the door...but i'll be poor
what a drag it is when they're sold

costs are just too high today
when marked up, it makes ya bray
the pursuit of such as this can make ya roar
but anticipation grows...and its hopeless, i suppose
its too much they're gonna sell for
cause my mother is a scalper
if you want to hear 'em play
bring your credit card today...PAY !
