The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Opened up my fridge today
And it was mostly bare
Not a trace of caviar
And no Wagyu was there

Had to skip a yoga session
Life just isn't fair
I hopped out of my Lexus and
I shouted to the air

It's a long way to get to payday
It's a long way to go
It's a long way to get to payday
And the money that I'm owed

Guess I'll use my Amex
When I pay the maid
It's a long long way to get to payday
So I need a raise

I have got subscriptions
To see all my streaming shows
Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix
And so many mo'

On my ultra 4D HD
I bought yesterday
But now it seems I'm overdrawn
So I just have to say

It's a long way to get to payday
It's a long way to go
It's a long way to get to payday
And the money that I'm owed

Guess I'll tap my trust fund
Though it's getting low
It's a long long way to get to payday
But I need more dough

Father said to get a job
And so he called a friend
Now I work ten days a month
It seems it never ends

Sitting in my penthouse office
Signing forms all day
All for a lousy twenty thousand
Bucks a month for pay

It's a long way to get to payday
It's a long way to go
It's a long way to get to payday
And the money that I'm owed

Need a diamond collar
For my St. Bernard
It's a long long way to get to payday
My life is so hard
It's a long long way to get to payday
My life is so hard

Here are $ 555 to tide you over. And "it's a long way to the election" would also fit the meter, just saying.
