Seems every time I try and get myself ahead
I always seem to end up in the same ole' mess
I wish to feel the same way every day
Try to make some sense and try to make it pay

500$ to split four ways
That's what it cost to hear us play
It covers my expenses
and it's a good rate of pay
500$ to split four ways

The other mornin' I could not get out of bed
Laquidaisical thoughts swimming through my head
To win the race is a long way down the road
I need a horse that's fast, mine don't seem to go...
