I saw you sittin' there sippin' red wine down at Causen Mills I knew you'd prob'ly be outta my league but I though, what the hell? Aw, what the hell Five dollars a glass was kickin' my butt but I kept on buyin' I kinda thought you were into me So I kept on tryin' to get them sparks a'flyin'
In my forty dollar blue jeans Next to a beauty queen Used to the finer things All I had to my name was a big ol' truck and a little ol' place I couldn't help but think I can't afford to love you But I can't afford not too Hoo-hoo-hoo
I asked you if you ever stared up at the stars from a tailgate Down by the river with a six pack You said no, but it sure sounds great You climbed up in my old truck Sittin' right beside me I cranked up a country song And you started smilin' Yeah, this ol' boy was stylin'
In forty dollar blue jeans Next to a beauty queen Used to the finer things I missed work for three days Kissin' on you, didn't get paid I couldn't help but think I can't afford to love you But I can't afford not to Hoo-hoo-hoo
We been together ever since that night You're still in love with that same old guy That same old guy, old guy
In forty dollar blue jeans Next to a beauty queen Used to the finer things Yeah, we set a date for next spring Workin' two jobs, pickin' out rings I can't help but think I can't afford to love you I can't afford to love you But I can't afford not too Hoo-hoo-hoo
I can't afford not too Love on you

New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
