High, High, High Cost of Livin The landlord wants his money And the grocery bill is due My ol wallet's gettin flat And boys, I'm tellin you My clothes are getting ragged And my shoes are getting thin Just lend an ear and you will hear The awful fix I'm in: cho: It's the high, high, high cost of livin Oh tell me what a workin man can do? It's the high, high, high cost of livin I'm in the red and feelin mighty blue! There's no T-bone steak at our house, And no more choclate pie We can't afford those luxuries, The prices are too high, I used to drive a Cadillac Until the other day But I had to trade the darn thing off And get a Model A. My little wife she told me Just the other day Throw out the chest and tell the rest That Junior's on his way Now since you can't go shoot the stork, A helpin hand I'll need; Oh tell me how I can afford Another mouth to feed? As performed by the Critton Hollow String Band MD OCT98
