"Spend Your Life" as written by and James Joseph Smith....
Listen I've got a bit of fiscal trouble
I don't want a sub but I need a few bob
In the last year I've seen my debt double
An I can't pay it off 'cause I ain't got a job
It must have been the small print I misunderstood
The offer on the leaflet looked so good
I was poor, my mum was rusting
The man on the advert looked so trusting

Isn't it funny, how people spend there life away
Buy now pay later then consolidate your life
On day time telly, the trusted man brings piece of mind
And a life-line for those who don't work
And isn't it funny, how people live a life of debt
To one person, that they have never met
On the leaflet, just sign on the dotted line
Stay in the red 'til the day that your dead

I'm tryna keep from debt and all I do is spend spend spend
I can't afford that much so why they let me lend again?
I can't bank on, a credit culture life of greed
I don't know how I'll cope with mortgages and mouths to feed

Isn't it funny, how people spend there life away
Buy now pay later then consolidate your life
On day time telly, the trusted man brings piece of mind
And a life-line for those who don't work
And isn't it funny, how people live a life of debt
To one person, that they have never met
On the leaflet, just sign on the dotted line
Stay in the red 'til the day that your dead

Listen I've got a bit of fiscal trouble
I don't want a sub but I need a few bob
In the last year I've seen my debt double
An I can't pay it off 'cause I ain't got a job
It must have been the small print I misunderstood
The offer on the leaflet looked so good
I was poor, my mum was rusting
The man on the advert looked so trusting

Isn't it so funny how we, people spend our lives away

isn't it funny, how people spend there life away
Buy now pay later then consolidate your life
On day time telly, the trusted man brings piece of mind
And a life-line for those who don't work
And isn't it funny, how people live a life of debt
To one person, that they have never met
On the leaflet, just sign on the dotted line
Stay in the red 'til the day that your dead

    General CommentCan´t get more straight forward than this i guess, it all speaks for itself.
    Not the most fantastic lyrics, but I like the fact that its not your everyday pop song subject.
