10cc – Overdraft In Overdrive Lyrics

I got a letter this morning, my overdraft’s in overdrive
They wanna know what I’m gonna do about it
How I’m proposing to survive, stay alive, stay alive, ooh
They want the money, so, I work and work and work

They’re making me roast, the cheque’s in the post
You needn’t worry, worry, worry
You hit the roof when I’m on the floor
Did I ever let you down before?

I got a letter from my broker, he says he’s broker than me
My silver mine has tarnished over, I’m on the road to tragedy
Help me, help me, ooh
I need the money, so, I work and work and work

I’m deeper in debt, I’m covered in sweat
You make me worry, worry, worry
This nightmare’s giving me the shakes
Hope I wake and find it’s all a mistake

I started with nothing, and worked my way down
I know the things that I do, they mystify you
It’s a strange way of living but I like playing with fire
I’m always walking the wire
And when the tightrope snaps, you’ll see my world collapse

I got a letter this morning, must be my lucky day
Seems I’ve inherited a fortune
Rich Uncle Sam passed away, away, away, ooh
I’m in the money, no more work and work and work

My banker’s aghast, I’m dripping with cash
No need to worry, worry, worry
You need an angel to survive
An overdraft in overdrive
