Dollars & Sense (End Of The Money)

Story Behind The Song

We all know what it's like to have too much month left at the end of the money, and we've all played the blame game when it comes to household finances. I wanted to drop the listener into the middle of a big money fight between a husband and wife, and have them smile at the end.

Lyrics

VERSE 1
Bags from the department store spread out on the bedroom floor
Deals like that don't come by twice. Don't you start another fight
Money doesn't grow on trees. Why'd you have to go buy these?
Round and round, Dosey-doe. This song & dance is all we know

PRE-CHORUS 1
The handle on my shovels' worn from digging us out
I don't have a clue what you're talking about
Let me break it down and make it simple for you, honey
We got too much month left at the end of the money

CHORUS 1
Baby, I would be lyin'
If I said I wouldn't spend another dime, but I'm tryin'
Traded riches for rags on the day that we met
Now we got 15 dollars... and no common sense

VERSE 2
If we've been down on our luck, why'd you buy that pick-up truck?
Hold on now, am I to blame? Are we gonna play that game?
Sick and tired of being poor, I can't live like this no more
This broken record isn't new. What are we suppose' to do?

PRE-CHORUS 2
Been praying for some rain to come and end this drought
I don't have a clue what you're talking about
Let me break it down and make it simple for you honey
We got too much month left at the end of the money

CHORUS 2
Baby, I would be lyin'
If I said I wouldn't spend another dime, but I'm tryin'
Traded riches for rags on the day that we met
Now we got 15 dollars... and no common sense

GUITAR SOLO

BRIDGE
Too much month left at the end of the money
Too much month left at the end of the money
Too much month left at the end of the money
We're at the end of the money...

CHORUS 3
Baby, I would be lyin'
If I said I wouldn't spend another dime, but I'm tryin'
We might be broke, but it ain't too late yet
To save a few dollars... and learn some common sense
