Well, you told me that you weren't infectious
So I brought no precautions with me
And you said your old man was in Texas
And anyway he'd forgotten his key

So I put my cassette in your bathroom
And threw all my clothes on your floor
Next thing I remember, door bursts in and out
There I am caught in the raw

Blackmail, you're blackmailing me
Sponging all my money
I don't think it's funny
The way you've been badgering me

So I'm hiding out in the basement
Wondering how on earth I'm gonna survive
Well, your old man hollers
I've got ten thousand dollars for you
'Cause I know you can provide

Leaving me with grounds for my divorce
Pulls out his cheque book and starts to endorse
Two Benjamin Franklin's
And before I can thank you mama
Runin' on account of the law

Blackmail, you're blackmailing me
When I'm rendering you a service
Makes me feel real nervous
'Cause trying to get me into your schemes

Blackmail, you're blackmailing me
Sponging all my money
I don't think it's funny
Way you done the dirty on me

Blackmail, you're blackmailing me
Sponging all my money
I don't think it's funny
Way you've been badgering me

Blackmail, you're blackmailing me
Sponging all my money
I don't think it's funny
Way you've done the dirty on me
