"BETTING ON TOMORROW"

Verse 1 [Boy]
They came to take the car today, for repossession
And now begins the sad progression. -
They'll take the stereo away, the chairs and tables.
Soon the old house too,
Because of debts we couldn't pay.

Verse 2 [Girl]
All the finer things of life that come so easy,
Just to sign my name was all they needed.
But I didn't see the price would be our freedom.
The credit company,
Owns my man and me today.

Chorus
Boy: We gambled and lived it up
Both: Betting on tomorrow
Then all of our plans and dreams fell short.
Girl: With credit all used up,
Boy: And no way we can borrow
Both: We're happier now
Just banking on the Lord. --

Verse 3
Boy: We'll have to learn to carry on cash and carry,
Not much cash,
Girl: But not much worry-
About the things we thought we'd need to look successful
Boy: We'll try from day to day,
Both: To live content with what we've got.

Chorus
Both: We gambled and lived it up
Betting on tomorrow
Then all of our plans and dreams fell short.
Boy: With credit all used up,
Both: And no way we can borrow
We're happier now
Just banking on the Lord.

Just banking on the Lord
On the Lord….oooh!
