i owe i owe
it's off to work i go
gotta earn dough
can't be slow
so it's off to work i go...
it's off to work i go

got collectors knockin' at my door
there's collectors callin' on the phone
can't they see that i am poor
can't they just leave me alone?

i owe i owe
it's off to work i go
gotta earn dough
can't be slow
so it's off to work i go
it's off to work i go

see i knew that i shoulda paid cash
but i jreally didn't have the funds
plastic! more charges amassed
interest alone left me stunned

i owe i owe
it's off to work i go
gotta earn dough
can't be slow
so it's off to work i go
it's off to work i go

don't think i'll ever get outta debt
and is it ever weighin' me down
runnin' up bills i regret
any more charges i'll drown

i owe i owe
it's off to work i go
gotta earn dough
can't be slow
so it's off to work i go
it's off to work i go

i'm so tired of workin' so hard
there's gotta be an easier way
house bill's late, so is the car's
when will the lottery pay

i owe i owe
it's off to work i go
gotta earn dough
can't be slow
so it's off to work i go
it's off to work i go

bein' poor is a pain in the ass
'specially with the times so lean
collectors harass, harass
do they have to be so mean

i owe i owe
it's off to work i go
gotta earn dough
can't be slow
so it's off to work i go
it's off to work i go

off to work (gotta earn dough)
off to work (can't be slow)
off to work (so it's off to work i go)
off to work (it's off to work i go)
