Well it was Saturday night, I was sitting in the kitchen
Checking out the women on Spanish television
Got a call from Paul who was just let out of prison
He said hey listen, there's something I'm missing
I said I'm on it, honest, it's on its way
You're gonna get your money in a couple of days, okay?
I'm just a little strapped for cash
Take it easy baby, cut me some slack, I said

I'm just a little strapped for cash
Very temporary, don't you worry 'bout that
Strapped for cash

So I headed out west to invest in the races
All the goddamn horses kept falling on their faces
Didn't fare much better at the Taj Mahal
Chalk it up to bad luck and free alcohol
And now I'm laying low, you know I'm trying to stall
But I don't know how much longer I can dodge the calls
Sayin'

I'm just a little strapped for cash
Don't you know I wouldn't do you like that
I'm just a little strapped for cash
Give me a minute you know you'll get it back
C’mon

Strapped for cash
Strapped for cash

Six bodybuilders pulled up in a Pinto
Next thing I know they're coming through the window
Hate to keep you waiting, I know times are hard
Now would you prefer a Visa or a MasterCard

Because I'm just a little strapped for cash
Take a seat, I'll be back in a flash, I said
I'm just a little strapped for cash
No need to have a heart attack
Bop shoo wop, bop bop shoo wop

    General CommentThe epitome of FoW:


    So I headed out west to invest in the races
    All the goddamn horses kept falling on their faces

    This is such a great verse, and perfectly describes how silly their songs are. Pure comedy.
