The Lyrics

Chorus:
Broadway Loans, my poor soul you will not own
Just my check that you are holding for two weeks
And did I hear you say I'm your valued customer today?
You're handy when my finances are weak

I'm holding on by the skin of my teeth, baby
Like many, many other people, maybe
So I walked downtown on the corner, there you are
Some give you the titles to their cars

In my younger days I didn't have a care
Mom and daddy, they were always there
Then a thing called cost of living skinned my hide
Tax man's Frankenstein and I'm his bride

Chorus:
Broadway Loans, my poor soul you will not own
Could it be these threadbare days will soon pass by?
And did I hear you say I'm your valued customer today
The cost of living's outrageously high

Repeat Chorus
