Holy cow! The time is now.
Throw in the towel.
Act like an owl.
Who , who, who is to blame
For, for, for all your pain

Obama?
Your Mama?
Your Father?
The weather?
Your liver?
Your lover?
That cold winter night  when he stole all the covers?

Buy something to make it better.
Buy a record.  Buy a sweater.
Buy a book or buy some shoes.
Buy your way out of these blues.

Buy a cookie. Buy a hat.
Buy a picture of a cat.
Buy it used. Buy it cheap.
Buy a necklace buy a sheep.
Buy something to give.
Buy something to keep.

You know what they say.
You can’t take it with you.
They’re not going to bury you with your dough.
So why not make use of it before you go?

So spread it around.
Grease a couple palms.
See what grows.
Drop a little something in an artist’s collection plate.

Buy a cookie. Buy a hat.
Buy a picture of a bat.
Buy it used. Buy it cheap.
Buy a necklace. Buy a jeep.
Buy something to give.
Buy something to keep.

And if you don’t have the cash
Don’t sweat it.
Just listen to the music.
And don’t regret it.
