Earn Enough



I've been praying all the week through
At home, at work and on the bus
I've been praying I can keep you
And to earn enough for us

I can take humiliation
And hurtful comments from the boss
I'm just praying by the weekend
I can earn enough for us

Found a house that won't repair itself
With it's windows cracking
And a roof held together with holes
Just because we're at the bottom of the ladder
We shouldn't be sadder
Than others like us
Who have goals for the betterment of life
Glad that you want to be my wife, but honest
I've been praying all the week through
At home at work and on the bus
I've been praying I can keep you
And to earn enough for us

So you're saying that we're going to be three
Now, a father's what I'll be
Don't get me wrong, I'm so proud
But the belt's already tight
I'll get another job at night, but honest

I can take humiliation
And hurtful comments from the boss
I'm just praying by the weekend
I can earn enough for us
Just because we're at the bottom of the ladder
We shouldn't be sadder
Than others like us
Who have goals for the betterment of life
Glad that you want to be my wife, but honest

I can take humiliation
And hurtful comments from the Boss
I'm just praying by the weekend
I can earn enough for us
I can earn enough for us

Psstt. Subster. Yeah, over here.

You know those big square trucks you see driving around the neighborhood, thru the mall and pizza shoppes and grocery stores and downtown past the Apple store? Yeah, those.

Those are FULL of money. Cash. NO, I'm not shitting you. And here's the best part. There's three guys with guns 'guarding' the money, but they only make $7.35 an hour, and they are NOT gonna argue with you over somebody else's money. It's just deadweight to them.

Dig in, help yourself...

Maybe you should end each post with:

If you enjoy my blog, please buy me a cafe latte for $2.95, or cafe latte and a sandwich for $7.95, or add a salad for $11.95!

I never much liked that one. My first atheist rock was Elton John.

I even get that working at home. Not to mention the sexual harassment.
