Give me 'til Monday, that's only a day or two
Give me til Monday, that's only a day or two
I'll pay you back with interest the last thing that I do
I'll pay you back with interest the last thing that I do
Yeah, yeah

Give me 'til Monday, that's only a day away
Give me 'til Monday, that's only a day away
I'm down on my knees, got one foot in the grave
Down on my knees, got one foot in the grave
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Got the loanshark blues
Got the loanshark blues
Give me an offer I can't refuse

Wife needs shoes, the kids must eat
Feel so cold, I can't feel my feet
Can't get my hands on one thin dime
I'm gonna turn to a life of crime

No work here, so I walk the street
Sign on the door, I feel I'm beat
I know you run Pier 15
You got a grip on all my dreams

I got the loanshark blues
The loanshark blues
Give me a number I can't refuse, yeah

Give me 'til Monday, that's only a day or two
Give me 'til Monday that's only a day or two
I'll pay you back with interest the last thing that I do
Pay you back with interest the last thing that I do
Yeah

Got the loanshark blues
Got the loanshark blues
Give me a number I can't refuse, yeah

Roofs got holes, see the sky
I can't get straight and I have tried
I'm in your debt, I'm well aware
I'll break the law cause I don't care

Living on a knife edge I have been
But I'm too tough to just give in
Moving on down with the Longshore men
On the docks we're locked out again

I got the loanshark blues
The loanshark blues
Give me a number I can't refuse

I got the loanshark blues
Got the loanshark blues
Give me a number I can't refuse, yeah, yeah
Loanshark babe
