Made It To Payday

A song for those of you living from one payday to the next…

and a way to get ahead and change things for the better:

Ain’t got nothing in my pockets,
My empty wallet’s flat.
Too tired to get to sleep,
Too hungry to get fat!
Thought my car broke down again,
It was only out of gas.
Time to find a new girl friend,
To pay for my broke ass!

But I made it to payday, half my bills are paid.
Made it to payday, today I have it made!
Made it to payday, trip to the grocery store.
Made it to payday! Please sir can I have some more?

Verse 2
Credit cards keep climbing,
One day I’ll pay all my rent.
Brother, can you spare a dime?
I’ve got all mine spent!
Selling my time and soul,
Working for the man.
How do I get off the wheel?
Be all that I am?

Chorus
Gotta make it to payday!
Bridge
Gonna change the world, build a bridge, make a better deal…
Solve a problem, fill a void, help someone to feel…
Unite the tribes, find my voice; work smart, think clear, be real…
Find the secret to a better life, that’s how….

Chorus 2
I’ll make it to payday, my bills are always paid.
Made it to payday, finally have it made!
Made it to payday, bought the grocery store
Made it to payday, I have plenty more!

Verse 3
Got gold coins in my pockets,
Building up my stash!
Eat four times a day,
Bought two cars with cash!
Tenants pay me rent,
Own the candy store!
Brother take my shirt,
I have plenty more….

End: Chorus 2
I made it to payday, my bills are always paid.
Made it to payday, finally have it made!
Made it to payday, bought the grocery store
Made it to payday, I have plenty more!
