“Get What You Pay For” Lyrics

There’s a story going ’round
Some folks have not heard it yet
Well, you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get

This is what I’m hearing
As I hang out on the set
Well, you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get

Whoa, children
Please don’t forget
That you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get

Now here comes cosmic oil can Harry
He’s gonna collect on your karmic debt
’Cause you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get, yeah

Whoa, children
Please, please, please don’t forget
Well, you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get

Now you’re hangin’ from the trapeze of life by one finger
And you’re slippin’ and you’re prayin’ for a net
Well, you get what you pray for
And you pay, pay, pay for what you get

Whoa, children
Please, please, please don’t forget
That you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get, yeah, my pet

[break]

Whoa, children
Please, please, please don’t forget, remember this
You get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get, yeah, my pet

Whoa
For the last time now, please don’t forget, remember this
That you get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get, yeah
