Me and a buddy named Cisco went down to sip some suds
First thing you know me and old Cisco ran through fifty bucks
We got caught in a card game they said they's bring us home
They must've changed their minds I've only got one dime
And one time to use the telephone

And I said hello honey go borrow some money get your sweet man outta the can
Well it's Saturday night they've got me locked up tight way off I can hear a band
Jump up baby put on your clothes
Hope in your studebaker come and tell the jailer you want sweet tater and Cisco
[ guitar ]
Me and Old Cisco went to a go-go a place called the bottom of the pile
Up on stage there was a couple of babes wearin' nothin' but big ole smile
The joint got raided while we was cheerin' them on
They took us and booked us and they only gave us one time to use the telephone

And I said hello honey go borrow some money...

We dropped in on a love-in but that had it's problems too
We couldn't tell what we got didn't know what to do to who
We started demonstratin' oh we should've stayed home
Here we're back downtown waitin' in line for our time to use his telephone

And I said hello honey go borrow some money...
