"One for the Money" as written by and Kris Kristofferson....
He said, "I'm sorry I have to cancel the plans we made
I got a weekend business trip bound to LA"
She drives him to the airport

And watches till he boards the plane
Then she hurries to a phone booth
And across town the telephone rings

She's got one for the money
Two for the show
One to pay for the credit cards
And two to rock 'n roll

One gave her the wedding ring
The new car that she drives
But two gives her the feeling she needs
That one's money can't buy

Now she arrives at the honky tonk
Just a little bit late
Parks her Mercedes 'round back
Cause her name's on the license plate

She steps into another life
As she walks through the door
Then she melts into his arms
As they dance out across the floor

And she's got one for the money
Two for the show
One to pay for the credit cards
And two to rock 'n roll

One gave her a wedding ring
The new car that she drives
But two gives her the feeling she needs
That one's money can't buy

Another wild lover's weekend
Ends too soon
And when they open up the blinds
It's Sunday afternoon

She wishes it could last forever
And he's beggin' her to stay
But she's got to pull herself together
Cause there's a plane coming in from LA

And she's got one for the money
Two for the show
One to pay for the credit cards
And two to rock 'n roll

One gave her the wedding ring
The new car that she drives
But two gives her the feeling she needs
That one's money can't buy

She's got one for the money
And you know two for the show
One to pay for the credit cards
And two to rock 'n roll

One gave her the wedding ring
The new car that she drives
But two gives her the feeling she needs
That one's money can't
