lyrics

(Richie "Durt Poor" Rich)
Yo, Tape cassette of Alanis Morissette (I can’t afford it. )
Blue ray of cast away (I can’t afford it)

motorcycle with a basket and a leather jacket (I can’t afford it. )
But I’m so broke I can’t buy a joke

TV set with VCR
Shot a booze for everybody at the bar

3 speed speed toaster with HDMI
chili cheese fries and a mail order bride (I can’t afford it)

Cant afford Nintendo or cruise out on the sea .
Popcorn at the movies or a college degree .

Like to get the latest and the greatest in technology
Wanna buy an I phone but I gotta do my Laundry
can’t barely eat on my crappy salary.
So I'm hunting for a bargain or anything that’s free

(Hook)
All these things I really need Don’t call it an obsession
What you call junk I call material possessions.
Should I get a job or maybe mooch off all my friends?
Or get a credit card instead You know it never ends.
How can people live on just the Bare necessities
I need to buy a lot of things because it makes me happy.
you know you got a lot of hope when your dirt poor.
I gotta a lot I want but I want I cant afford.

(Timmy J)
To be vegan and gluten free (I can't afford it)
An ikea shopping spree (I can't afford it)

My own tiny piece of the American dream,
Or at least some freeze dried space age ice cream.

But I can't afford to be a ballar when I got to Holla for the ol' mighty dolla but I can't afford to act serious cause I can't even afford these half assed lyric.

and I can't afford all the licks to the center of a tootsie pop
A manly moustache, like Geraldo. The gps coordinates of Waldo.

I can't afford to make another pop culture reference.
And I wish I could afford some fruity pebbles for breakfast.
I can't afford street cred, and I can't afford lessons
On how to make cool looking rap hand gestures.

(Hook)
All these things I really need Don’t call it an obsession
What you call junk I call material possessions.
Should I get a job or maybe mooch off all my friends?
Or get a credit card instead You know it never ends.
How can people live on just the Bare necessities
I need to buy a lot of things because it makes me happy.
you know you got a lot of hope when your dirt poor.
I gotta a lot I want but I want I cant afford.

(Killa Nerd)
Japanese Troma VHS tape (I can't afford it)
Spell book by professor Snape (I can't afford it)

Gold plated spaceman Pez
The 11th doctors bright red fez
Scratch to pay off the judges
Scrilla to squash all of my grudges

A politician that's sitting in my pocket
A visit to the moon in the first commercial rocket
A new hot rod that's angry and mean
Or an Adams family pinball machine

Production office with a personal arcade
My own holiday with cake and a parade
A garbage plate with hot wings and fries
A flying guillotine and a dozen samurais

All these things I really need Don’t call it an obsession
What you call junk I call material possessions.
Should I get a job or maybe mooch off all my friends?
Or get a credit card instead You know it never ends.
How can people live on just the Bare necessities
I need to buy a lot of things because it makes me happy.
you know you got a lot of hope when your dirt poor.
I gotta a lot I want but I want I cant afford.
