Stock Market Blues Lyrics

by Hank Williams Jr.

Hey Charlie Snob could you make me some investments
I wanna get the hell out of here
Ive ordered my Mercedes I wanna meet some classy ladies
And start drinking champagne instead of beer
Now I dont have much money but we could work out somethin
I could send you twenty bucks a week
He said thats not how it works and just what is your net worth
I said my net worth is what I got on me
So I called up my mother-in-law told her about the ad I saw
Guaranteeing a fortune to be made
I said I need a hundred thou cause we have got to jump in now
Well make a bunch and split it up two ways
So I met her down at the bank grabbed a check and then I ran
As fast as I could to their store
Now heres all the money so pick some winners sonny
And call me up when we make the big score
Well I saw it on the evening news stock market really had the blues
And when it closed it set an all time low
I wondered where did I go wrong why did this happen to me Lord
Ive got to get that money back ya know
Well I just sat there and wondered why I was gonna buy low and sell it high
But things sure didnt work out that way
I dont know what Im gonna do and to tell yall the truth
I think Ive lost my assets today
Hey broker man please dont make no more investments
Cause I would like to keep my shirt and pants
Cancel that Mercedes Im going back to the old lady
In Little Rock instead of Paris, France
No Ill never play that game againI think yall saw me comin friend
And I jumped right in like a big fool
Oh I thought Id make some money but its really kind of funny
Cause I borrowed all of it from you know who
Oh I thought Id make some money but its really kind of funny
Cause I borrowed all of it from you know who
