"Alimoney (Also recorded as "Alimony")" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
Alimoney, alimoney
I work till my fingers are bloody and boney
Me, oh my, oh, goodness sake,
I'm payin' for my mistake

She calls it alimoney, alimoney
Yeah, you single men may think it's funny
Till one of these days, you're gonna wait
And find you're payin' for your mistake

I walk around ragged like a low down bum
I can't afford to weigh myself or buy a stick of gum
It's the same old story with a little more blues in it
I'm payin' for it while someone else is usin' it

Alimoney, alimoney
I thought I bought steak, and it was all baloney
My heart and back are both about to break
From payin' for my mistake, yeah

Yeah, I walk around ragged like a low down bum
I can't afford to weigh myself or buy a stick of gum
Why, it's the same old story with a little more blues in it
I'm payin' for it while someone else is usin' it

Alimoney, alimoney
Thought I bought steak, and it was just baloney
And every penny that I make
Goes to payin' for my mistake
Oh yeah, payin' for my mistake
Every Wednesday
Yeah, aw come on, baby, y'know it's your mistake too, yeah
They took all the furniture and everything, come on
Why, maybe we could sorta pitch in and work it out, y'know
I mean I could get a third job, if that's what you want, I mean
What about sellin' my blood, y'know ...
