Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks-Payday

I got my paycheck today
I think I’ll spend it like a crazy fool
Or I’ll give it all away
Something like the golden rule
And my paycheck ain’t hay
But somehow I just don’t seem to care
Ever since she went away
And left my little house so cold and bare
And I won’t tell ’em at the bank
What I’m gonna do with all my dough
I’ll just smile and tell ’em thanks (thanks)
For it’s better than they shouldn’t know

Then I’ll go and have a drink
At a little place where I can sit and think
‘Cause my baby went away
And left me here on my payday

Payday was never like this, no, no
Payday, but where is my happiness, I don’t know

I think I’ll have another drink
At a little place where I can sit and think, I’m thinkin’ ’bout the girl who went away
And left me here on my payday

Yeah, I think I’ll go down to the home of happy feet
I’m buying this round, bartender, make mine a hardball banger

Then I’ll go and have another drink
At a little place where I can sit and think
About the girl who went away, baby
And left me here on my payday

Payday was never like this, no, no
Payday, but where is my happiness, I don’t know

Then I’ll have another drink
At a little place where I can sit and think
‘Cause my baby went away
And left me here on my payday
