lyrics

Living life in poverty or living it in misery
I don't know which one is worse
You doll yourself up pretty when you go and hit the city streets
But that don't stop the world from tugging on your purse strings

I know that you want to make a pretty penny
But you're bending over backwards like you already spent it

I know that you can't resist
And when you're off the clock you don't window shop?
I'm not buying it

A strangers just a friend you haven't met yet, or slept with
You made your bed with a pocketful of bread so don't lie in it
If money were no object would you stop behaving like an object?
Pretty Penny

You're a greedy guts, you see it then you bake your cake and eat it
But can't you just please keep it in your pants for one night, dear?
You put food on the table, yeah you're bringing home the bacon
But it's cut from a pig that's been rolling in the shit

It's a dirty job, another day another dollar
With a filthy gob, 'cos they pay more if you swallow

I know that you can't resist
And when you're off the clock you don't window shop?
I'm not buying it but I always end up footing the bill.

A strangers just a friend you haven't met yet, or slept with
You made your bed with a pocketful of bread so don't lie in it
If money were no object would you stop behaving like an object?
Pretty Penny

A strangers just a friend you haven't met yet, or slept with
You made your bed with a pocketful of bread so don't lie in it
'Cos it defeats the object when you love being treated like an object
Pretty Penny
