The critics said the movie was unreal,
and guaranteed to make a grown man cry,
I walked up to the booth and did a deal,
I swapped the man a ticket for my tie.
On Thursday night my landlord came around,
he wanted two months rent arrears from me,
itís lucky that he loved my Afghan hound,
we did a deal and now I live rent-free.
A guy came to the door the other day,
he said I needed his insurance plan,
I quite agreed and signed up right away,
the premium: my stainless frying pan.
I took a taxi cab to KFC,
the driver was a black man from Zaire,
he looked like he could use a meal to me,
I took him out a snack box for the fare.
The waitress didnít seem to like my style,
insisting that I pay my bill in cash,
she looked like she could really use a smile,
I paid her with a half a gram of hash.
The other day I went to see a shrink,
he told me I was drinking too much scotch,
his fee was fifty bucks, I caused a stink,
he settled for my old Bugs Bunny watch.
A real old-fashioned circus came to town,
my friends and I were broke and couldnít go.
but then I made a contract with a clown,
he got my shoes, we saw the midday show.
This Wall Street crisis could be over now,
I bet that I could make the crashes stop,
they need to listen Ė I can show them how:
Donít pay for stuff with money Ė simply swap!
