Electric bill is overdue, the phone is disconnected
There?s no money in my pockets and the checkbook?s in the red
They?ve cancelled all the credit cards and repossessed the Lincoln
But I just keep on smiling though the bank account is shrinking

The nickel and diming, flat-busted hard timing
All fade away when we turn out the lights
Taking what life brings, enjoying the finer things
We?re living in luxury tonight

Dinner is by candlelight, the finest hot dogs in the store
Our silverware is plastic and our table is the floor
Sipping snifters of root beer as we?re warmed by the glow
Of the flames that lick the burners of our old kitchen stove


I know it sounds funny
Don?t have any money
But I feel like I own the world
Friends look down there noses
Don?t keep up with the Joneses
But I know I?m a privileged girl
