“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, yeah

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, yeah

Whoa, children
Please don’t forget
You get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get, yeah, mm

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
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
You get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get, yeah, my pet

Peter: Thank you. Well, that woke me up. I don’t know about you.
