The Kinks

The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964. Categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country. Ray Davies (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Dave Davies (lead guitar, vocals) remained members throughout the group's 32-year run. Original members Pete Quaife (bass guitar, vocals) and Mick Avory (drums and percussion) were replaced by John Dalton in 1969 and Bob Henrit in 1984, respectively. Dalton was in turn replaced by Jim Rodford in 1978. Keyboardist Nicky Hopkins accomp… more »

Cheap is small and not to steep
But best of all, cheap is cheap.
Circumstance has forced my hand
To be a cut-priced person
In a low-budget land.
Times are hard, but we'll all survive.
I just gotta learn to economize.

I'm on a low budget!
I'm on a low budget!
I'm not cheap, you'll understand;
I'm just a cut-price person in low-budget land.

Excuse my shoes they don't quite fit,
They're a special offer and they hurt me a bit.
Even my trousers are giving me pain
They were reduced in a sale, so I shouldn't complain.

They squeeze me so tight so I can't take no more!
They're a size twenty eight, but I take thirty four!
I'm on a low budget! 
What did you say?
Yeah, I'm on a low budget! 
I thought you said that.

I'm on a low budget!
I'm a cut-price person in a low-budget land.
I'm shopping at Woolworth and low-discount stores 
I'm dropping my standards so that I can buy more.
Low budget sure keeps me on my toes.
I count every penny and I watch where it goes.

We're all on our uppers we're all goin' skin.
I used to suck cigars, but now, I suck Polo mints.
I'm on a low budget! 
What did you say?
Yeah, I'm on a low budget! 
I thought you said that.

I'm on a low budget!
I'm a cut-price person in low-budget land
I'm on a low budget!
Low budget!
Low budget!
Art takes time
Time is money.
Money's scarce, 
And that ain't funny!

Millionaires are things of the past.
We're in low-budgetville, 
Where nothing can last.
Money's rare there's none to be found,
So don't think that I'm tight if I don't buy a round.
I'm on a low budget! 
What did you say?
Yes, I'm on a low budget! 
I thought you said that.

I'm on a low budget!
I'm a cut-price person in low-budget land
I'm on a low budget! 
Say it again.
Low budget. One more time.
Low budget.
