Lovin’ Over Budget

Lovin’ Over Budget

We live in an apartment

It’s what we can afford

The jobs we have pay all the rent

Thank God and praise the Lord

The fact that we’re employed and healthy

Makes us mighty proud

We’re middle class – not sick or wealthy

And you can bet your bottom dollar

Our love is well endowed

Somehow we’re livin’ like

A king and queen

Without a big castle

Or buying a thing

And while we keep on livin’ life

Within our means

We’ll keep on lovin’ over budget

Far beyond our wildest dreams

She likes to cut out coupons

He’d rather dicker down

We often stop to window shop

Before we go to town

On the day when we were married

We didn’t wear expensive rings

We put a few bucks down for a bridal gown

Payin’ pennies on the dollar

We ate cup cakes and got more things

Somehow we’re livin’ like

A king and queen

Without a big castle

Or buying a thing

And while we keep on livin’ life

Within our means

We’ll keep on lovin’ over budget

Far beyond our wildest dreams

Go to auctions, save receipts and never buy cars new

Always hate it when we have to go in debt

Don’t buy magazines that envy what the big stars do

Always looking for  new ways to make do, yet

Sometimes when money’s tight

And the soup is getting thin

Wouldn’t it be nice

To roll in dough and waller

When our ship comes in!

For now we’re livin’ like

A king and queen

Without a big castle

Or buying a thing

And while we keep on livin’ life

Within our means

We’ll keep on lovin’ over budget

Far beyond our wildest dreams

-Instrumental –

Go to auctions, save receipts and never buy cars new

Always hate it when we have to go in debt

Don’t buy magazines that envy what the big stars do

Always looking for new ways to make do, yet

Sometimes when money’s tight

And the soup is getting thin

Wouldn’t it be nice

To roll in dough and waller

When our ship comes in!

Somehow we’re livin’ like

A king and queen

Without a big castle

Or buying a thing

And while we keep on livin’ life

Within our means

We’ll keep on lovin’ over budget

Far beyond our wildest dreams

  1. Fun little country song. Perfect for Andy Jackson.
