Sallie Mae 04:09
I wanna drink a fifth of whiskey / but I got only pocket change / or play a sad song on the jukebox / but that costs three bucks nowadays / my woman kept me sleeping easy / for four years to the day / but now my luck has turned around / and I’m in debt to Sallie Mae Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / raise a glass to Sallie Mae / she’ll promise wealth, she’ll promise knowledge and then she’ll turn her head one day / Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / one more time for Sallie Mae / I hope my debts will be forgiven / before I take them to my grave She said she saw potential in a ruffian like me / and that there’s intrinsic value in studying art or philosophy / Now a hundred essays later / and I see that I’ve been played / Now I’m just a well-read waiter / who gives his tips to Sallie Mae Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / raise a glass to Sallie Mae / she’ll promise wealth, she’ll promise knowledge and then she’ll turn her head one day / Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / one more time for Sallie Mae / I hope my debts will be forgiven / before I take them to my grave Tell your brothers and your sisters / don’t you do the things I did / Or if you plan on having babies / a word of your warning to your kids / always know the things you’re signing, read every line of your contracts / cause if somebody offers money / lord, they’ll always want it back Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / raise a glass to Sallie Mae / she’ll promise wealth, she’ll promise knowledge and then she’ll turn her head one day / Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / one more time for Sallie Mae / I hope my debts will be forgiven / one day Sallie Mae, Sallie mae / give three cheers, hip hip hooray / I got a little piece of paper and I know owe her 20K / Sallie Mae, Sallie Mae / lord, till my dying day / I’ll regret that I crossed paths with a girl named Sallie Mae
