Alright, Lonnie, Junior, the band, the girls and I, we're gonna do a song for you now, a little Mac Rise number.
Hey, all you married men, if you're tied up, you better stay tied up. Because it's cheaper to keep her.

It's cheaper to keep her
It is cheaper to keep her


When your little girl makes you mad
You get an attitude and pack your bag
Five little children that you're leaving behind
You're gonna pay some alimony or do some time


It's cheaper to keep her (Cheaper to keep her)
It's cheaper to keep her (Cheaper to keep her)
See when you get to staring that judge in the face
You're gonna wanna cuss the whole human race
It's cheaper to keep her (Cheaper to keep her)
Too much to leave that little girl (Cheaper to keep her)
It's cheaper, it's cheaper, cheaper, it's cheaper
It's cheaper, it's cheaper
It's cheaper cheaper cheaper cheaper, yeah


You didn't pay for two dollars to bring the girl home
Now you're about to pay two thousand to leave alone
See another woman out there, you wanna make a change
She ain't gonna watch you 'cause you won't have a damn thing


It's cheaper to keep her (Cheaper to keep her)
Cheaper to keep her (Cheaper to keep her)
The time you get to looking at the judge in the face
You're gonna wanna cuss the whole human race
It's cheaper to keep her (Cheaper to keep her)
Cost too much to leave (It's cheaper to keep her)
It's cheaper, cheaper, it's cheaper, it's cheaper
It's cheaper, cheaper
Cheaper cheaper cheaper cheaper, yeah


If you decide to roam
And leave your happy home
You gotta pay the house note
The child support, your insurance
Alimony, morgage 1, morgage 2


It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her


It's cheaper, to keep her!
