I know that it's evil
I know that it got to be
No I ain't doin' much
Doin' nothing means a lot to me
Living on a shoe-string
A fifty cent millionaire
Open to charity
Rock'n'roll (wellfare)

Sittin' in a Cadillac
Listenin' to the radio
Suzy baby get on in
Tells me where she wanna go
I'm livin' in a nightmare
She's looking like a wet dream
I've got myself a Cadillac
But I can't afford the gasoline

I got holes in my shoes
(And I'm way over due)
Down payment blues

Get myself a steady job
Some responsibility
Can('t) even feed my cat
On Social security
Hiding from the rent man
They make me wanna cry
Sheriffs knockin'on my door
Ain't if funny how the time flies

Sitting on the sailing boat
Sippin' on the champagne
Suzy baby's all I've seen
Says she wants to come on deck
Feelin' like a paper cup
Floating down the storm drain

Got myself a sailing boat

But I can't afford the gasoline

I got holes in my shoes(And I'm way over due)Down payment blues
