The Lyrics

Too far to payday,
That's what we say when we're together,
And how will we play?
We got nothing saved for rainy weather,
And so we're,

Cashing it as fast as we can,
Can't believe they gave us a whole grand,
Tryin' to deposit it into the bank,
Before our checks can bounce
Then we stumble to the ground,
And then you say,

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

Look at the way,
We gotta hide what we're doin'.
'Cause what would they say,
If they ever knew we were so stupid

Cashing it as fast as we can,
Can't believe they gave us a whole grand,
Tryin' to deposit it into the bank,
Before our checks can bounce
Then we stumble to the ground,
And then you say,

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

Cashing it as fast as we can,
Can't believe they gave us a whole grand,
Tryin' to deposit it into the bank,
Before our checks can bounce
Then we stumble to the ground,
And then you say,

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

It's a big payday loan now,
But there doesn't seem to be another choice around.
It's a big payday loan now
The interest is the highest in the whole damn town

It's a big payday loan now....

Had to ding you a point for pacing as you've squeezed an extra syllable into a couple of lines - very good - and true - though, made me smile.

Pacing get's off herer and there. I like the concept, but it's too repitious (I know the original is to, that's why I dislike it) i'd change it up a bit make it more original. Just me though. Not bad

Jan, Nice job. Couldn't go "5" across 'cause had to knock a point off the pace. Although Johnny and (and Guy, also) I have discussed pacing choices and reader perception on more than a few occasions I would have shortened "It's a big payday loan now" to "A big payday loan now". To me that fits perfectly, particularly the Tiffany version. Of course to you it might change a precise thought or meaning you were trying to pass along. Hadn't looked at any of your stuff before but I saw the recommends from the above folks and I know the original version(s) (tommy james as well as Tiffany) pretty well. I''m going to take a minute and see if I know any of the originals of your other postings enough to weigh in on them.

Good song. Where I live, there is a place called Mission Financial that can loan you up to $1000 before your next paycheck if you have had a job and a checking account for a minimum of three months. They do no credit check, but you have to be careful about borrowing them or you'll have a big problem - the day you get your paycheck, you have to surrender it to them and you have no money left on pay day! (For interest, they charge $1 for every $100 borrowed per day, minimum of 15 days.)
