Woke up this mornin, my merger had fallen through,?Can't afford the Bentley, Mercedes will have to do.?
My shrink is busy, reception won't put me through,?
I've got expenses up, stocks down Scottsdale blues.

My accountants missing, my deductions are missing too,?
He's left for Cabo, and the audit is overdue.?
Hope they're understanding at Internal Revenue,
?I've got expenses up, stocks down Scottsdale blues.

My baby's crying, her Dior has come unglued,
?Her form was rising, but the silicone's leaking too,?
Her friends are laughing, seven carats will not do,?
I've got expenses up, stocks down Scottsdale blues.

Thor is disappointed, cause my workouts are not good,?But Bambi seems to like him, and he seems to like her too,
?I guess it's something that I'll just have to suffer through,?
I've got expenses up, stocks down Scottsdale blues.

I need a new consultant, but I just can't figure who,?
My stocks are laggin, my IPOs are coming through,?
I'll never make it on this lousy million-two,
?I've got expenses up, stocks down Scottsdale blues.?That's the expenses up, stocsk down Scottsdale blues.
