Keeping Accounts

© Midnight Island Music

Monday morning, time to take the bus to the bank
Gotta make up the money I drank
Counting all the dollars I sank on mindless movies
Endless lines in which I stand and wait
Filled with fools like me who always make
The same mistake

What's the good of going on
Always feeling overdrawn

Listen sister, can you tell me how much I've got
I know it's probably less than I thought
They say you stand to suffer a lot on speculation
Every time I'm left without a cent
It seems so hard to get that money spent
Back again

What's the good of going on
Always feeling overdrawn

Come next Monday, I'll be out of cash again
Gone to buying beer for my friends
Gettin' desperate for someone to lend me the balance
You'd think I'd know by now what it's about
One more wasted weekend up the spout
Stepping out

What's the good of going on
Always feeling overdrawn
What's the good of going on
