And cash in the bank is what thriftiness brings!
But rainy day savings can hardly compare
With a new pair of shoes I am longing to wear
Today, not tomorrow!
Must I beg, steal or borrow?
I look, I lust, I rationalize hard,
Then open my purse and pull out my card.
I know it’s wrong, I know that I shouldn’t –
I tried to resist them, yet truly, I couldn’t!
