Jordan Zevon – Payday lyrics

I will be your paper pioneer
If you'd be my willing volunteer
At least you've got the face to save
Cross your fingers 'til it's payday
If I try my best to sound sincere
Will you marry me within the year?
If you love and honor I'll obey

To pave the way until it's payday
On our own
We've got enough to go on
But together we'll have to work to live on
Hold the landlord off at bay
Stiff the piper 'til it's payday

Armed with our wax winged Achilles heels
Tales of bravely useless high ideals
As long as we keep pride at bay

Any day will soon be payday
On our own
We've got enough to go on
But together we'll have to work to live on
Hold the landlord off at bay
Stiff the piper 'til it's payday

We know
We haven't got too far to go
So we must try
Got to try to keep our pride in tow
Hold the landlord off at bay
Stiff the piper 'til it's payday
I will be your paper pioneer
If you'd only stay 'til payday
