Down thru the ages
All the sages
said don't spend your wages on Love
Graft and collusion
_____ the intrusion
and proceeding foreclosures
there's overexposures
down at the crossroads
the question is posed
bridge is washed out
and the highway's closed
___ ___ ___ reason
firmly believe
love was designed
to exploit and deceive
There's a _____
Wherever you send 'em
Every ball ___ ___ in your chest
You will see
simple addition
keeps with tradition
Don't spend your wages on Love
Taking any burgh any city or town
Just get on main street and
drive all the way down
You see love has a graveyard
___ ___ __ ___
___ ___ ___ ___ ___
and paid thru the nose
your shovel's a shot glass
dig your own hole
bury what's left of your miserable soul
Down thru the ages
All the sages
said don't spend your wages on Love
Graft and collusion
_____ the intrusion
and proceeding foreclosures
there's overexposures
down at the crossroads
the question is posed
bridge is washed out
and the highway's closed
