Seven-fifty once a week
They pay me seven-fifty once a week
You see me walking tall
Down at the shopping mall
Because I'm making seven-fifty once a week

Now every Monday morning when I get my pay
I feel very rich indeed
I got a pocket full of money
I can spend each day
So I can pay for all the stuff I need

I got a great start
But here's the hard part
I got to plan for every expense

Because every nickel counts
When your entire allowance
Is only seven dollars, fifty cents

But I do like to live it up! Every day after lunch at school, I treat myself to an ice cream sandwich. At fifty cents apiece, that comes to two and a half dollars every week. But that's ok, I got five dollars left. I'm still ahead of the game. I start with . . .

Seven-fifty at the top
My favorite bubble gum is sixty cents a pop
I've got to choose and plan
And do the best I can
I think I'm going to have to learn to shop
By just comparing prices I can save a lot

I spent two dollars for a bite to eat
This chicken enchilada really hits the spot
But it's on sale for fifty cents across the street

Now I would like to try a slice of pizza pie
But I am high and dry
It's no joke
I should have planned ahead
I spent it all instead

My allowance is gone
And I am broke

When you get seven-fifty once a week
Sometimes the situation seems a little bleak
Because it's a drag at the mall
When you got no cash at all

You're down the tube
You're up the creek

Well there goes my allowance
I didn't plan ahead
I made some bad choices, and I compared prices too late
I guess I'll have to find a way to earn some more
But that shouldn't be too hard
Maybe I can do an extra household chore
Like wash the car or mop the floor
Or maybe help clean up the backyard

I'll get my spending plan
I'll get my shopping done
And still have cash on hand
That I can spend . . . on fun!

I still get seven-fifty once a week
But now I learned some money management technique
And I can save enough
To buy some real cool stuff
And I made my little fortune so to speak
On only seven-fifty, once a week
That's my allowance
Seven-fifty once a week

I balanced my budget!
