Ring a ling with the telephone
Is the man of the house at home
Your master card is over due
Mr Mo we need a payment from you
Right now
Right now Right away

Looky here
I aint got nothing to send you today
But im gonna give you all your money
Soon as I get paid
Soon as I get paid

Well now the joint was jumping
It was saturday night
Her hair was long
And the dress was tight

I looked at her
She looked at me
And the champagne stared flowing to a quarter to three
yea yea oh yea
To quarter to three

Look Mr Bartender
Im gonna make it ok
Im give you all your money
As soon as I get paid
Soon as i get paid

Monday morning money gone
Its a dog gone shame
Dont worry I get you straight
You'll be fine
You know what
You'll get yours
When I get mine

Uh

Whoah ohhh

Got a letter from the IRS
Your tax return is a terible mess
We want our money
We dont like to wait
Please come an see us on such and such date
Right now
Oh yea right away
Well I aint got nothin' to send you today
But im gonna give ya all your money
Soon as I get paid
Soon as I get paid

Well well

Soon as I get paid
Thursday and Friday evening
Soon as I get paid
Better catch me before monday
Soon as I get paid
Oh yea
Soon as I get paid
Your heard me
Soon as I get paid
Soon as I get paid
