I Blew It Big – Poetry Saturday

I just got my first check from all the work we finished
Was a lot but you won’t believe what I did
Bought the bar a double-round of Crown
Now there’s nothing left to show my wife and kids

I have to pay my crew but I don’t know how now
The bank loan is coming due can’t make the payment
Learn from my lesson don’t let it happen to you
Don’t be suffering under a mountain of debt

I blew it big… Ya I blew it all
Now I don’t even have a quarter to make a telephone call
When you’re in business you have obligations
And it’s a long way down to fall
Oh I blew it big, I blew it all

My wife forgave me again like she’s done before
Then I have a few drinks to muffle out the crying
I might be an alcoholic my friend but I can’t quit today
In the morning I won’t be feeling so fine

I blew it big… Ya I blew it all
Now I don’t even have a quarter to make a telephone call
When you’re in business you have obligations
And it’s a long way down to fall
Oh I blew it big, I blew it all
