A Bargain At Twice The Price

from The Cost Of Doing Business by Graham Wright

/

lyrics

I want to open a little bar
Where all my friends can hang out
And if they’re having a tough time
I’ll shut the doors and kick all of the customers out

We’ll take the loss
It’s only money, man, who gives a shit?
We can just write it off
I’ll sit ‘em down, top ‘em up, and tell ‘em this:

You’ve got to spend money to make money
You’ve got to live life to live life
It’s gonna hurt when your heart breaks
But it’s a bargain at twice the price
You know, you win some, you lose some
And it gets heavy sometimes
That’s just the cost of doing business
And it’s a bargain at twice the price

I hope that the pandemic is over soon
So I can visit the States
I got some friends and some family down there
They’re churning out kids at a downright incredible rate

It’s hard to believe
It seems like yesterday that we was young
I can’t wait to meet
And try and tell them all of this as they grow up:

Look:
You’re probably not going to marry a movie star
And you’re gonna see some shit on TV
It might get hard to stay soft
But kid, you’ve got to stay strong
Come on, keep your head up
And I’ll try and tell you what I think I believe

You’ve got to spend money to make money
You’ve got to live life to live life
It’s gonna hurt when your heart breaks
But it’s a bargain at twice the price
You know, you win some, you lose some
And it gets heavy sometimes
That’s just the cost of doing business
And it’s a bargain at twice the price

I might be wrong
I’m just some guy, and this is just for now
But I wrote this song
To try and spell it out the best way I know how...

You’ve got to spend money to make money
You’ve got to live life to live life
It’s gonna hurt when your heart breaks
But it’s a bargain at twice the price
You know, you win some, you lose some
And it gets heavy sometimes
That’s just the cost of doing business
And it’s a bargain at twice the price
