WSP 221 Paid [rough mix]

from Weekly Song Project v3 by Jonathan Burks



Today I picked a song order and started artwork for the new album, it's coming along pretty good. This song will be on there.



piss and moan don't get nothing grown
aint no way around the work
I'm up to my teeth in foiled schemes
keeping my mouth free of dirt

two steps back aint nothing jack
but a running start
9 to 5's getting me by
while I commoditize my heart

I wanna get paid
gonna grab me a slice
they say money don't buy everything
but it buy everything I like

row my boat against the flow 
common sense aint my friend 
if I had a lick I would take the hint 
and hang up my pen

but I'm a stubborn man
gonna lay down tracks till my craft catches wind
if you don't hoist that mainsail 
you aint gonna do nothing much but drift

I don't rock no bling, that aint my thing
I don't roll with rent round my neck
I'm living like a king on some rice and beans
bouncing from check to check

pinching pennies and dimes for some studio time
my head aint getting less thick
I do it for the art, because it's from the heart
but you can't eat a 7" split
