Low Budget Land

(2 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Cheap is small and not too steep

But best of all cheap is cheap

Circumstance has forced my hand

To be a cut price person in a low budget land

Times are hard but we’ll all survive

I just got to learn to economize

I’m on a low budget

I’m on a low budget

I’m not cheap, you understand

I’m just a cut price person in a low budget land

Excuse my shoes they don’t quite fit

They’re a special offer and they hurt me a bit

Even my trousers are giving me pain

They were reduced in a sale so I shouldn’t complain

They squeeze me so tight so I can’t take no more

They’re size 28 but I take 34

I’m on a low budget

What did you say

I’m on a low budget

I thought you said that

I’m on a low budget

I’m a cut price person in a low budget land

I’m shopping at Woolworth and low discount stores

I’m dropping my standards so that I can buy more

Quality costs, but quality wastes,

So I’m giving up all of my expensive tastes.

Caviar and champagne are definite no’s,

I’m acquiring a taste for brown ale and cod roes

Low budget sure keeps me on my toes

I count every penny and I watch where it goes

We’re all on our uppers we’re all going skint

I used to smoke cigars but now I suck polo mints

I’m on a low budget

What did you say

Yea I’m on a low budget

I thought you said that

I’m on a low budget

I’m a cut price person in a low budget land

I’m on a low budget

Low budget

Low budget

Art takes time, time is money

Money’s scarce and that ain’t funny

Millionaires are things of the past

We’re in a low budget film where nothing can last

Money’s rare there’s none to be found

So don’t think I’m tight if I don’t buy a round

I’m on a low budget

What did you say

Yes I’m on a low budget

I thought you said that

I’m on a low budget

I’m a cut price person in a low budget land

I’m on a low budget

Say it again

Low budget

One more time

Low budget

I look like a tramp, but don’t write me off,

I’ll have you all know, I was once a toff

At least my hair is all mine, my teeth are my own,

But everything else is on permanent loan.

Once all my clothes were made by hand,

Now I’m a cut price person in a low budget land.

I’m on a low budget

I’ll have you all know

We’re on a low budget

I’m on a low budget

    that Obama is a republican in all but name?

    He’s not caving, he’s achieving the results he sets out to achieve, and he’s very very good at achieving them.

    It’s no wonder he has that big grin plastered on his face so often.

    He must have hard time not bursting out laughing, but give him more time…

    i really do…

    to understand just wtf is going on in DC

    but i just can’t

    i’m too much of a humanitarian…

    i do not understand putting profit & good-buddy favours before the well being of humans.

    i just don’t.

    & the bastids are pissing me off more & more

    do not be surprised if you read some crazy woman “went off”

    i’m ver ver close to it

    i don’t have hardly anything left to lose at this point

    They all self-reinforce each other. Even the left is right of center in this regime. I feel closer to the fiscally responsible, small government Tea Party people than I do to the Dems. And I’m a Progressive.
