The Lyrics

At some point in their lives, everyone tries to be a little more frugal. This dude may have taken it a titch too far, though...
Of all the things one can suffer
Don't wanna run out of stu-uff
And so I've taken to skimmin'
Ev'rythin' I can, dude
All that's possible, dude
It's not just spendin' less money (that's just standard)
All my portions end up cu-ut, oh-ooh-oh-oh
Where I once had a muffin (can't have it)
Just have a crumb or two
Dare not have three, just two

Cut down on drinks, cut down on showers
Done at the same time cuts down hours
Near ev'ry day I sit and think
"I've gotta save more" my creed
Things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit
Things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit
Things that I've, things that I've, things that I've

Resources I've sa-aved include ba-ags and fresh trou-out
Once I did love to fly-y, now that's right ou-out
You might sa-ay I deserve some indulgence
But you do-on't kno-oo-o-ow (things that I've)
Why I do this stuff, dude (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit, things that I've)
You don't know the whole truth (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)

I gotta separate my-y "need it" from my "want it"
I'm always wantin' too mu-uch, oh-ooh-oh-oh
Hard researchin' the barest food minimum
I can do without food
For a couple days, dude

There's no "too far" that I will go
To cut the crap, don't need it, no
Listin' time takes hours and hours
To work out which fridge eats more power
Things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit
Things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit
Things that I've, things that I've, things that I've

I will be oka-ay o-once I ha-ave cut right ou-out
Unnecessary thi-ings, hopefully no-ow
I don't need ca-ake, don't need ale, don't need bu-utter
You do-on't kno-oo-o-ow (things that I've)
Why I do this stuff, true, buddy (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit, things that I've)
You don't know the whole truth, buddy-y (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit, things that I've)
If I told you the truth, buddy (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit, things that I've)
You wouldn't believe, dude, the truth why (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit, things that I've)
Lots of things I can lose, buddy (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit, things that I've)
And that's just what I'll do, ah-ah-ah (things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)

If I told you
You'd do it, too (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
Can't handle the tru-u-uth, ri-ight (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
But this life is made of arse, it's utterly shi-ite (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
I don't want you in this hell, don't join in this life (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
I know you don't wanna be hungry just like me (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
Oh-oh-oh, mate (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
I've lost all my fav'rite stuff, I do miss the sight, ooh-ooh, buddy (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
Of my full DVD shelf, may seem a small plight (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
Must hide the truth, bu-uddy, and you can't he-elp (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
Because it (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
Means tellin' the truth, bu-uddy, yeah (things that I've, things that I've, things that I've done to conserve shit)
