The Brand New Budget Inspiration Blues

Got the brand new budget inspiration blues
I'm gonna spend my money
any old way I choose
come the first
I'll pay the rent
Lord knows that money's heaven sent
and anyway you add it up
you just can't lose
when you're payin with
the brand new budget
Inspiration Blues...

Got into an accident last week
Bust my craw
wired my jaw
now I can hardly speak
I don't care about the wreck
I'm waitin on that insurance check
but that Chevy I plowed into
well...it ain't no hit and run
cuz I'll be payin out the yin yan till it's 1991.

Chorus

Did you really have an accident??

Nah. No accident. Never bust my craw either. The song was written in 1989 while living in California, with a rent of $450 and a coupla bills...sheesh. ALl I had to do was work a few more shifts. What a complainer. And Lazy! I had to make up some misery for material.

Gina, I didn't know you've been writing all this time!
Man, Marisa turned 29 yesterday...

The wheel is turning and you can't slow down

You can't let go and you can't hold on

You can't go back and you can't stand still

If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will

I don't write much, Ang. I just had so much time on my hands!
