Single from the forthcoming Sad Dad Ep, out October 12 2018

lyrics

Already spent a hundred dollars today
I gotta spend a hundred more
Just to walk outside my door

Here in New York we all got bills to pay
The best things in life are free
Everyone’s else charges a fee

You might not understand me
So hear me when say
I’m caught between the nanny and hard, hard place

I’ve tried financial planning
My prospects can’t keep pace
I’m caught between the nanny and a hard, hard place

Look at the people at my coffee shop
How do I like my coffee poured?
Coffee I know I can’t afford

Look at the shelves at my Food co-op
A million kinds of milk to choose
Long as I pay my monthly dues

You might not understand me
So hear me when say
I’m caught between the nanny and hard, hard place

I’ve cut out shipping and handling
A baby’s something you can’t replace
I’m caught between the nanny and hard, hard place

Benadette from Togo
That was a low blow
It’s wasn’t fair
Benadette from Togo
Tell me how’s it cost $20 an hour
For a nanny share

My wife has her own perspective
She says, “money isn’t everything
And we can live on a shoestring”
But my wife has her own objective
She’s do whatever has to be done
As long as she gets that second one
I think now you understand me
So hear me when I say
I’m caught between the nanny and hard ,hard place

I’d do anything for my family
So I starting saving just in case
I get caught between the nanny and hard, hard place
