Every young adult can relate to money issues and waiting for your next check. Money alone can make you feel like no matter what you do, there will always be that problem of having too little and wanting to do too much.


I want my check
My wallet’s down to two dollars
Oh dear, its time to ask father
No, I need to stand my ground
I just won’t buy anything cute around
But I wanna feel capable
Money’s not the issue
It’s just sad, I can’t even buy tissues
Forget this, I’ll find my own
Way to not budge
Tap, tap, nudge, nudge

Another day where, I just can’t wait
It’s too LATE
My mind is set, my day is wreck

I got another better to do
Than complain about the little things I do

My room so gross
I mean, dear, what a clutter
I did’t know
That this would be such a bother
Mom, don’t worry I’m 24
I swear, I can do this
I swear I can do more
Wait no, are any of you a maid?
But first hang on, I’m waiting for that check, gotta get paid
See this is my problem
I keep falling back
Just thinking I’m such a sap.

You see, I’m young enough
That everything just seems so tough
You know, this is never ending
Instead of time with people, its more cash that I’m spending
You think, that I need to get it together
Remind myself daily, that I can do better
Well, you’re not me
Let me complain about the things that I do see
