Paul Barrere and Lowell George
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
Go on and hang that man who says the best things in life are for free
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
She's just one more bad habit I was too blind to see
The lady and I was happy at first
Just livin' from day to day
Off the wall came the call said we're destined to fall
If I don't bring home more pay
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
Go on and hang that man who says the best things in life are for free
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
She's just one more bad habit I was too blind to see
She spent all my money just like it was spare change
I wonder what I'll lose first my life or my mind
Don't know the doors from the windows
Shee keeps me amused, damaged, and abused
And she said "Small change don't make no sense
and your words are worthless too
And ya best bring home more bacon, darlin',
or you and me is through"
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
Go on and hang that man who says the best things in life are for free
Keepin' up with the Joneses is killing me
She's just one more bad habit I was too blind to see
