The Lyrics

With your hang dog look and your words so smooth
The only word I ever hear from you is borrow

You were reluctant to spend your own money
My ladders, mower and my shop tools you've borrowed

You never buy what you know you oughta
Difficult to borrow bricks and mortar - Borrow
Ahhhh, oo, oooo

(borrowed sax solo)

I tried to ask ya
Where's my game of Twister? (I tried to ask ya)
I never knew where you hid my sister - Borrow

With your big fake smile and your constant cadge
Everything I own's in your garage - it's borrowed
Oh no - Oh no
Where did my hoe go?

Got my Tupperware
You got my Pooh night-light
And you do not care
