Mastercharge Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
My wife has a charge card
That I got her the other day,
I owe five hundred dollars
That's just for yesterday.
Verse 2
I said,
"Honey, here's a present go out and shop around.
Get a couple of dresses and browse around
She did just what I told her,
Bought one, two or three
Then came home looking silly
Making goo-goo eyes at me.
Verse 3
[Chorus: x3]
Master Charge
Master Charge
A Bank of America Card
Verse 4
I said, "Did you get your dresses?"
She said, "Yes, one or two,
But I had to get me some shoes and I needed
Some jewelry too."
Verse 5
She had $200 dresses
That I could have made and I can't sowe!
Fifty Dollars pair of shoes
And I thought you so and so.
Verse 6
I said, "What about the jewelry?"
As calmly as I could.
She said, "Honey, you'll love them. They're pure African wood."
Verse 7
[Chorus: x3]
Verse 8
Let's charge it!
Let's charge it!
Verse 9
She said, "They were $200 and I paid
One and a half!"
I just didn't believe it,
I was so mad I had to laugh.
Verse 10
I could see it in my mind
On a horse like Paul Revere
I check my mail box
'Cause these bills keep coming here.
Verse 11
[Chorus: x3]
Verse 12
Charge it!
Let's charge it!
Let's charge it!
