I'm up every morning
Before the sunshine comes rolling in
When that rooster starts crowing
It just reminds me that I need to feed him

Every day is the same
But every day is different
'Cause every day I grow
Deeper in debt

And you can't cash my checks
And you can't feel this hunger
You can push me into the water
But you can't hold me under

You can bring me down
But you can't make me beg
You can take my word
But you can't cash my checks

It's so hard to stay honest
In a world that's headed to hell
You can't make a good living these days
'Cause the truth just don't sell

So if you go out my back door
Just over the hill
You'll see all these plants
That's been paying my bills

But you can't cash my checks
And you can't feel this hunger
You can push me into cold water
But you can't hold me under

You can bring me down
But you can't make me beg
You can take my word
But you can't cash my checks

You can bring me down
But you can't make me beg
You can take my word
But you can't cash my checks

You can take my word
But you can't cash my checks
