My friend's got a girlfriend
man he hates that bitch
he tells me everyday
he says "man I really gotta lose my chick
in the worst kinda way"
she sits on her ass he works his hands to the bone
to give her money every payday
but she wants more dinero just to stay at home
well my friend you gotta say

CHORUS--I won't pay I won't pay ya no way
why don't you get a job
say no way say no way no way
why don't you get a job

I guess all his money well it isn't enough
to keep her bill collectors at bay
I guess all his money well it isn't enough
cause that girl's got expensive taste


well I guess it ain't easy doin nothin at all
oh yeah
but hey man free rides just don't come along
(let me tell ya bout my other friend now)

my friend's got a boyfriend
man she hates that dick
she tells me everyday
he wants more dinero just to stay at home
well my friend you gotta say


I won't give ya no money
I always pay
why don't you get a job
say no way say no way no way
why don't you get a joooooooooob

    General Comment:This song is a p**s take of the Beatles "Ob-la-dee, Ob-la-da." And it's funny too!

    General Comment:It's about how (sometimes) our life-partner squeeze us out of money: they don't work but still buy stuff... and how it drives us MAD

    General Comment:Probably the best first line of any song ever written(Although "It'd be nice to have a blowjob" by Blink 182 comes close).

    General Comment:"my friends gotta girlfriend and he hates that bitch". perhaps the best opening line to a song ever! the little poppy beattles-imitation beat is just as amusing as the words to the song. the song tells of a relationship, when 1 partner works their ass off, while the other 1 stays at home and spends all the money
