Well... well... well.....

Now I....
Just got my paycheck and I'm on my way home...
Between the rent and phone bill... it's nearly gone... but I...
Try to make ends meet that just... don't wanna meet...
I can't complain but somewhere... I'm gettin' beat... now

Maybe it's the system... maybe it's the cost of livin'...
Every single weekend....
I never know where the money goes
Still I'm always givin'... and I'm...

Just barely breakin' even....
I've got to get some for myself...
Just breakin' even steven
I've got to get some for myself...

Well....
I'm not a pauper and I... work everyday
Somehow the cash flow seems to drift all away
But I... just try to make it into... another day....
Long as the Lord is with me, I'll find a way... now...

Maybe it's recession.... or the stocks that rise and tumble
Still, there is the question...
Of the bills I pay... that'll always stay
'Til I'm down and under... and I'm......

Just barely breakin' even....
I've got to get some for myself...
Just breakin' even steven
I've got to get some for myself...

I just try to make it ev'ryday... long as God is with me, I'll find a way
(I got to get some for myself)
I just try to make ends meet... somewhere... somehow... I'm gettin' beat...
(I got to get some for myself)
Now, I'm not a pauper and I work every day.. somehow my cash seems to drift away...
(I got to get some for myself)
I don't know what I'm gonna do... somehow, I'll make it through....now...

Maybe it's the system... maybe it's the cost of livin'...
Every single weekend...
I never know where the money goes... I never know where the money goes
I never know where the money goes
Still I'm always givin'... and I'm...

Just barely breakin' even...
I've got to get some for myself...
Just breakin' even steven
I've got to get some for myself...
(repeat 2x)

I'm breaking... barely breakin' even. Yeah...
I'm just barely breakin' even. Can make it.. 
What am I gonna do?
Somebody gotta help me...
Maybe it's the system...or the cost of livin'.
I still don't know where the money goes...

Barely breakin' even.
