Broke on Payday – co-written with Jack Frisby

My good songwriting buddy Jack Frisby and I wrote this together one day in the village here in Nashville.  Oh my do we all know what this is like?  Sometimes on payday I like to refrain from paying bills just for a few hours so I can feel like I have all that money to spend!  We would love to hear someone cut this song and do something special with it.  We think others can relate to getting money on payday that’s already spent! 

Mailman brought me three bills today; my woman and the rent are late. I know I should probably shave, get another job, learn to pray. Come this time tomorrow my way, all the money I spent yesterday.

Broke on payday, spent it on a lady, forty hours a week until they’ll pay me. Tip my hat to the man in charge, pick up the slack just to keep my job. Working hard, hey hey, to be broke on payday.

Landlord brought me a notice again, shade tree mechanic said it’s the transmission. People say I should learn how to save, the truth of it is there just ain’t no way. Come this time tomorrow fast, gonna feel good for a change to have a little cash.

Broke on payday, spent it on a lady, forty hours a week until they’ll pay me. Tip my hat to the man in charge, pick up the slack just to keep my job. Working hard, hey hey, to be broke on payday.

Punch the clock, play the game, pass the time, waiting for payday. Tip my hat to the man in charge, pick up the slack just to keep my job.Working hard, hey hey, to be broke on payday.

  • About Andrew McGee

    I am from a small town in northwest Florida where I spent my formative years studying music and eventually attending college for Integrated Marketing and Communication Studies. In 2008 after moving to Nashville to be closer to the music industry, I realized I liked working in web communications. Always having a knack for storytelling, I began seeking opportunities to help small business owners with their online goals, and developed skills to communicate comfortably with clients while executing technically advanced tasks. I earnestly connect with people and enjoy taking the time to patiently explain complex, technical solutions to people who are justifiably more focused on running their whole business and less focused on the tedious details of digital.
