Subject: Lyr Add: MONEY'S GETTING CHEAPER (J Witherspoon)
MONEY'S GETTING CHEAPER
As recorded by Jimmy Witherspoon, 1948.

Money's gettin' cheaper; prices gettin' steeper,
Found myself a woman but I just couldn't keep 'er.

CHORUS: Times getting tough and tough.
Yes, things getting rough and rough.
Well, I make a lot o' money, but I just keep spendin' the stuff.

Walked down to the market, asked the butcher for a pound,
Couldn't buy a pork chop when I laid my money down.

Politicians tellin' folks: cut down their meat.
Why don't they cut down the prices and let the people eat?

I can't afford to live, but I guess I'll have to try.
Undertakers got a union and it costs too much to die.
