She spent the money on a loaf of Wonderbread
And a can of Beefaroni Italian food today
What does he think when he pours himself a drink and he looks at me that way?
He spent a fortune on the labor and the parts
Got to keep it running another year or two
What does she say every time I drive away in her dad's old Subaru?
All rent to own
Debts unpaid left up to fate are heavy on the head
Can't let each other know, and so nothing's said
But that's a cop out when you break it all apart
And analyze the pieces, the bottom line is truth
What in the world makes a happy boy and girl buy their old age with their youth?
Harsh words from relatives
They won't leave us alone
Why pay the telephone?
At any rate, there is no fate, except someday they'll be dead
And who will tell them each what was never said?
And now she's nervous as he's coming up the drive
He's afraid to tell her how short their money goes these days
Who gives a damn about a woman and a man
Who are sure that neither understands
Why they look and act that way?
