Cheap is small and not too steep
But best of all cheap is cheap
Circumstance has forced my hand
To be a cut price person in a low budget land

Times are hard but we'll all survive
I just got to learn to economize

I'm on a low budget
I'm on a low budget

I'm not cheap you understand
I'm just a cut price person in a low budget land
Excuse my shoes they don't quite fit
They're a special offer and they hurt me a bit
Even my trousers are giving me pain
They were reduced in a sale so I shouldn't complain

They squeeze me so tight so I can't take no more
They're size 28 but I take 34

I'm on a low budget, what did you say?
Yeah, I'm on a low budget, I thought you said that
I'm on a low budget, I'm a cut price person in a low budget land

I'm shopping at Woolworth and low discount stores
I'm dropping my standards so that I can buy more
Low budget sure keeps me on my toes
I count every penny and I watch where it goes

We're all on our uppers, we're all going skint
I used to suck cigars but now I suck polo mints

I'm on a low budget, what did you say?
Yeah, I'm on a low budget, I thought you said that
I'm on a low budget, I'm a cut price person in a low budget land
I'm on a low budget, low budget, low budget

Art takes time, time is money
Money's scarce and that ain't funny
Millionaires are things of the past
We're in a low budget ville where nothing can last

Money's rare there's none to be found
So don't think that I'm tight if I don't buy a round

I'm on a low budget, what did you say?
Yes, I'm on a low budget, I thought you said that
I'm on a low budget, I'm a cut price person in a low budget land
I'm on a low budget, say it again, low budget, one more time, low budget
