JUST CAN'T AFFORD IT
(Mike Sanchez - Copyright Control)

 
Got my pay cheque and I was on my way home
Drove a little fast Ďtill a camera flashed on
This morning checked the mail, a summons I received
To hand away my licence on a speeding mischief

And I just canít afford it, no I just canít afford it
Moneyís too tight and Iím so broke it aint right, Ďcause I canít afford it

Gas, electrics, water rates and revenue tax
TV licence, MOT, I just canít relax
Because a new exhaust and two re-moulds and servicing costs
The pay I see in seven weeks, in one day Iíve lost

ĎCause I just canít afford it, I just canít afford it
Moneyís too tight and Iím so broke it aint right, I canít afford it

Insurance on my car, insurance on my health
Insurance on my house, lord I need a little wealth
Loans charging interest on my overdrawn account
No pension plans or savings, not a thing to help me out

I hate to open letters, Iíve stopped answering my calls
And my girl who used to love me, even thatís about to fall
Sheís gone back to her mothers it donít make me feel so fine
ĎCause sheíll drift off with another when she tasteís a fancy wine

And I just canít afford it, no I just canít afford it
Moneyís too tight and Iím so broke it aint right, Ďcause I canít afford it

Been working so hard Ďtill Iím too tired to fight
Sweating hard playing, getting home late every night
Well, mom and pop donít know about the problems I see
Iíve turned to skin and bone since they last looked at me

The studio Iím using to record this little song
The album cover, cd pressings and Mark whoís playiní along
Right down to tapes and petrol, all these guys Iíve gotta pay
Iíd better sell some copies or else the devilís on his way

And I just canít afford it, no I just canít afford it
Moneyís too tight and Iím so broke it aint right, Ďcause I canít afford it
