Bruce Springsteen – Pay Me My Money Down lyrics

I though I heard the Captain say,
Pay me my money down,
Tomorrow is our sailing day,
Pay me my money down
Oh pay me, oh pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

As soon as the boat was clear of the bar,
Pay me my money down,
The captain knocked me down with a spar,
Pay me my money down

Oh pay me, oh pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

I wish I was Mr Steven's son,
Pay me my money down,
Sit in the shade and watch the work done,
Pay me my money down

Oh pay me, oh pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

I wish I was Mr Howard's son,
Pay me my money down,
Sit in the shade and drink good rum,
Pay me my money down

Oh pay me, oh pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

Oh pay me, oh pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

    Umm. Uh-oooh. I halfway lost this chnalelge today, because I already made plans to go shopping when I woke up this morning, because I've gained some weight. (I'm still working on the ichoose2move chnalelge). But I must say that in the past two years, since I have made a life change and moved to another state, I am more conscious of spending. I moved into a smaller place(no more walk through closet), and now I see how much I've been blessed and didn't even realize it. In my new place I had nowhere to put alot of my things, so I've attempted to cram them all into a closet and under the bed. For instance, I had a whole garbage bag full of purses, some with the tag still on them, that won't fit under the bed. (we won't talk about the shoes). I can only carry one purse at a time, so this has forced me to be a more giving person giving to others who could use.
