Somebody's gotta crack a whip around here
Who's minding the store?
Shake it up sell some beer
What's your money maker for?
Pay day we're packin' 'em in
Six-gun Annie and buffalo Jill
But who's to say they'll be back again
For a refill? honey, you know the drill

Ain't no left turn down sleepy time street
You gotta be fat sbut you gotta stay loose
Thinkin' goin' your feet
Slick as grass through a goose
We gotta rationalize
The payroll is giving me chills
