Lyrics

play My friend's got a girlfriend
play Man he hates that bitch
play He tells me every day
play He says "man I really gotta lose my chick
play In the worst kind of way"

play She sits on her ass
play He works his hands to the bone
play To give her money every payday
play But she wants more dinero just to stay at home
play Well my friend
play You gotta say

play I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
play na-na, Why don't you get a job?
play Say no way, say no way ya, no way
play na-na, why don't you get a job?

play I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
play To keep her bill collectors at bay
play I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
play Cause that girl's got expensive taste

play I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
play na-na, Why don't you get a job?
play Say no way, say no way ya, no way
play na-na, why don't you get a job?

play Well I guess it ain't easy doing nothing at all
play But hey man free rides just don't come along
play every day

play Let me tell you about my other friend now

play My friend's got a boyfriend,
play man she hates that dick
play She tells me every day
play He wants more dinero just to stay at home
play Well my friend
play You gotta say

play I won't pay, I won't pay ya, no way
play na-na, Why don't you get a job?
play Say no way, say no way ya, no way
play na-na, why don't you get a job?

play I won't give you no money, I always pay
play na-na, Why don't you get a job?
play Say no way, say no way ya, no way
play na-na, Why don't you get a job?

meaning Meaning

It's about how (sometimes) our life-partner squeeze us out of money: they don't work but still buy stuff... and how it drives us mad. They spend money, but refuse to get a job and pay for anything.

The song sounds like the beatles song 'ob la di, ob la da' and Simon & Garfunkel's Cecilia song.
