Well it was Saturday night, I was sitting in the kitchen
Got a call from Paul who was just let out of prison
I said I'm on it, honest, it's on its way

Take it easy baby, cut me some slack, I said
Very temprorary, don't you worry 'bout that

All the goddamn horses kept falling on their faces
Chalk it up to bad luck and free alcohol
But I don't know how much longer I can dodge the calls
Don't you know I wouldn't do you like that?
Give me a mintue you know you'll get it back
Strapped for cash

Next thing I know they're coming through the window
Now would you prefer a Visa or a MasterCard?
Take a seat, I'll be back in a flash, I said I'm just a little strapped for cash
Bop shoo wop, bop bop shoo wop
