Payday

 

 

 
 

Let's go out on the town tonight
My pockets are heavy with loot
And get drunk and nasty
And loud and aggressive to boot
I've been living from hand to mouth
For what must be three or four weeks
And I can tell you one thing, Jack
You listen when your stomach speaks

I feel good
Just like I knew that I would
And all on account of that wine
That I bought today
And I'm smiling so sweet
For every little girl that I meet
And some fools will try to tell you
It's a sin to feel this way
Yeah, it feels so funny
Having all this money today
I think I feel like dancing the night away

I got me this long-legged girl
To help me to spend my dough
A heart as big as your mama's stove
And a body like Brigitte Bardot
I'm all ready for some rock n roll
With the guitars turned up loud
And some fancy footwork
In a low-down, boozed-up crowd

I feel good
Just like I knew that I would
And all on account of that wine
That I bought today
And I'm smiling so sweet
For every little girl that I meet
And some fools will try to tell you
It's a sin to feel this way
Yeah, it feels so funny
Having all this money today
I think I feel like dancing the night away
