the deal lyrics – fifteen

we were driving in a van
all over the place
broke down in mankato
i thought it was outer sp*ce
we got home
we got a call on the phone
15, 000 for 1 record
’cause we needed a new van
they put it out
18.50 in record stores
no lyric sheets in the tapes and records
starting feeling like wh*r*s
they had the option of a second record
20, 000 dollars more
enough money to put out our own records
if only we had some more songs
so i wrote this one to say
sorry for the overpriced records
if you send us a letter we’ll send you a lyric sheet
the address is 1235 cortez dr. #1 sunnyvale, ca 94086
