Master Charge

In the style of

Albert Collins

Lyrics

my wife has
a charge card
that i got her
the other day

i owe
five hundred dollars
that's just for
yesterday

i said honey
here's a present
go out
and shop around
get a couple
of dresses
and browse around
downtown

she did
just what i told her
bought one
two or three
then came home
lookin' silly
makin' goo-goo eyes
at me

mastercharge
mastercharge
a-bankamericard
mastercharge
mastercharge
a-bankamericard

mastercharge
mastercharge
a-bankamericard

i said
did you get
your dresses
she said yes
one or two

but i had to get me
some shoes
and i needed some
jewelry too

she had
two hundred-dollar
dresses
that i could've made
and i can't sew

fifty-dollar
pair of shoes
and i thought
you old so-and-so

said what about
the jewelry
as calmly as i could
she said honey
you'll love them
they're pure
african wood

mastercharge
mm mastercharge
a-bankamericard
mastercharge
oh mastercharge
heh heh
a-bankamericard

mastercharge
just go mastercharge
all new things
a-bankamericard
let's charge it
let's charge it

they were
two hundred dollars
and i paid
one and a half

i just didn't believe it
got so mad
i just had to laugh

i could see in my mind
on a horse like
paul revere
i hate to check
my mailbox
'cause these bills
keep comin' here

mastercharge
mastercharge
a-bankamericard
mastercharge
mastercharge
a-bankamericard

mastercharge
mastercharge
a-bankamericard

you run up all my bills
charge it
every time
i look around
it's charge charge

let's charge it
all she can say
a-let's charge it
with mastercharge

oh i have
a mastercharge
oh i have
a bankamericard too
mastercharge
oh would you mind
chargin' it please

now look
you're gettin'
too much on it now
be too much
chargin' now
let's charge it
