Lyrics

Taxes are taxing me. The man just got the best of me
I have got a recipe, but I have got no dough to buy my bread
So I’m callin you instead
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin to you
My covers do not cover me. The postman’s got no love for me
I have got some garden seed, but I have got no green to make it grow
And I can’t stand to be alone
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin to you

Forgive me if I’m comin on too strong. Forgive me if I’m lovin you too long
It’s not that I would ever do you wrong, it’s just that baby you’re how I get by
You’re the only thing that can make me forget that lately I’m just so deep in debt
That even when the rain is soakin me wet, Lord, my pockets they are dry

My clothes are closing down on me. My shoes are being mean to me
I could stand new scenery, but I have got no change to make a change
Still I’m lovin you the same
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin to you
My ride just rode away from me. The tide has turned and toppled me
I would play the lottery if there were any tickets to afford
Could I see you some more?
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin to you

Forgive me if I’m comin on too strong. Forgive me if I’m lovin you too long
It’s not that I would ever do you wrong, it’s just that baby you’re how I get by
You’re the only thing that can make me forget that lately I’m just so deep in debt
That even when the rain is soakin me wet, Lord, my pockets they are dry

Taxes are taxing me. The man just got the best of me
I have got a recipe, but I have got no dough to buy my bread
So I’m callin you instead
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin to you
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin to you
Like it or not, all that I got is what I’m givin.
