The Lyrics

Married to a "Shop-a-holic"? This guy is...
You always shop
every time you leave the house
well, if I could
I'd shop for another spouse
Every dime...that I make you quickly spend
No way to reverse this trend
Bills arrive, it never ends

I've pled and pled
Cajoled you, but it does no good
I'm in the red
I would control you if I could
I pull my hair...'cause you spend much more than I make
And all you do is take and take
Marrying you; a big mistake

Then the bills, they came
I am stressed, my nerves are fraying
All my cash is drained
It's all spent before payday
And you always buy
lots of crap that's overpriced
A god-damned shame
And that's no lie

Know I should
Try to get you to refrain
Pry your credit cards away
All my efforts are in vain

Need to make it plain
you silly dame
Useless to explain
Spending; need to rein
You've wrecked my brain

Thanks, JB. Well that's true, if we don't spend and consume beyond our needs and means how will we ever straighten out our Country's Economic problems???

Good job, Paul... Remember folks; we have to keep consuming more than we produce so that the Third World nations are able to rise in standard of living due to increased revenue, and so that our own economic downfall happens faster....

Macphisto/Guy/AFW - Thanks! Macphisto, I'd put my money on that scenario happening the way stuff is unfolding (and possibly unraveling). Guy, maybe he'll try to put a little aside each week for a divorce attorney. AFW - LOL...
