Well you can Telex my accountant
Call up Tele-Credit, too
I know they sent a monthly statement
But I never read it through
You say you won't accept my Visa
Or American Express
And the computer is suspicious
Cause I've got no fixed address
Lady, that's a valid document
Check out the way I'm dressed
You know the way I'm feeling now
I'd take a lie-detector test

Paradise lost for capital gain
Traded for a ticket on the gravy train
I can amortize the cost with a minimum of pain
But I need it for a write off
Can't take another night off
You know I never carry change

I just charge it
Where do I sign?
Charge it
Show me the dotted line
Charge It
I don't have the time to waste
Charge It
Oh don't mess around
Charge It
I've got to get downtown
Cause I promised to deliver
To live up to the letter of the
Lord, I'm in a state of grace
[yeah baby angel]
Oh, oh!
Well, I've enjoyed us doing business
But I really must confess
This pompous attitude just isn't calculated to impress
There's a driver in my car outside
Who's easily distressed
Lady, when he's through with you
He's gonna leave your face a mess

Paradise lost for capital gain
Traded for a ticket on the gravy train
I can amortize the cost with a minimum of pain
But I need it for a write-off
Can't take another night off
You know I never carry change
I just charge it
Where do I sign?
Charge it
Show me the dotted line
Charge it
I don't have the time to waste
Charge it
[Oh, don't mess around]
Charge it
I've got to get downtown
Cause I promised to deliver
To live up to the letter of the
Lord, I'm in a state of grace
[There's goes that [], babe]
[It's an equal opportunity there]

Charge it
Where do I sign?
Charge it
Show me the dotted line
Charge it
I don't have the time to waste
[Oh, don't mess around, babe]
[Don't mess around, babe]
Charge it
Where do I sign?
Charge it
Show me the dotted line
I don't have the time to
Charge it
[What is that?]
[A blue one, I don't have a blue one]
[A red one, I don't have a red one]
[Oh, just that gold one]
[I don't know, do they come in platinum?]
[whoa babe]
Where do I sign
[Maybe I can just make my mark]
[I don't know, do you read?]
[Are you literate, babe?]
[Are you numerate, babe?]
[Do you get laid, babe?]
[I don't carry green, it's just]
[It makes such a bulge in the pocket]
[You like the suit?]
[There's something in the piping in the back]
[I wanted to have changed]
[But my Spanish tailor didn't fly in last week]
[You know him? He's called Manuel]
[But he always makes the pocket so that if you put money in it]
[It looks so ugly]
[Oh, cash, baby]
[Cash anymore, babe]
[Oh, fine send for the manager]
[You can't be the manager]
[Are you kidding?]
[There's a serious problem in personnel]
