Lyrics

I got into town on the greyhound express, broke and hungry, no place to rest.
I needed some money. I needed some grub. I stopped at a place where I could give blood.
They turned me away; they did not like my type. Where could I go; my belly was starting to gripe.
I stumbled across a new kind of bank; they needed donations they were willing to pay.”
You can get paid for that? I had no idea, I’ve been wasting it Jack.
I can get paid to do what I do, most of the time, anyway, anyhoo.
Instead of a sock, I just use a cup, think happy thoughts and fill it on up.
You can come back in two minutes flat and I can get paid for that.

When I got through they gave me some cash, the light bulb came on, I had a news flash.
There’s plenty more where this comes from; I’ll be back tomorrow, this boy isn’t dumb.
They said, “Wait a minute we have policies; you can only make one donation a week.”
This boy isn’t stupid, my plan wasn’t wrecked, I’d cut out the middleman, I’d sell direct.

We hooked up one weekend at a Starbuck’s café. We’d met on a website, not for dating or play.
She had a partner of a similar sex, they wanted a baby but what to do next.
I went to the men’s room, with a magazine and a cup. She went in next, there I don’t know much.
Then we had a smoke and she wrote me a check, she gave me a tip and a hug on the neck.
I got paid for that. I had no idea, I’d been wasting it Jack.
I can get paid to do what I do, most of the time, anyway, anyhoo.
Instead of a sock, I just use a cup, think happy thoughts and fill it on up.
You can come back in two minutes flat and I can get paid for that.

I been catching some flak from the department of health. I really don’t care; I’m sharing the wealth.
I’m gonna keep on doing the deal, while my case is out on appeal.
The founding fathers, gave us liberty. The constitution has guarantees.
All men will be brothers, someday like me. I really mean that, literally.
You can get paid for that. I’m not a fool, I’m not wasting it Jack.
You’ll pay me to sit here and do what I do, most of the time, anyway, anyhoo.
Instead of a sock, I’ll be using this cup, think happy thoughts and fill it on up.
You can come back in two minutes flat and I can get paid for that.
