  • Well, the lady said will this be cash and I thought boy if that'en ain't a laugh
    Why I don't carry money of that kind
    Just put it on my charge account on account of I can't pay you now
    I'll pay for it a little at a time
    I'm just an average working girl trying to get along in this old world
    Looking for that rich man I might find
    But up 'til now the times are hard I'm living on my credit card
    And paying for life a little at time
    A little at a time that's how I pay my bills
    That's the story of the working girl
    Always going overboard buying things I can't afford
    In this charge account credit card, pay for it a little at a time world
    My weekly check don't amount to a lot, But I'm making payments on what I got
    At the end of the month I ain't got one thin dime
    And this old car I bought brand new but I'm still payin' on it too
    I've been payin' for it a little at a time
    Got a new apartment I just moved in and I'll do well to pay the rent
    It's unfurnished so a bargain I must find
    I saw a sign in a store downtown house goods for nothing down
    Pay for it a little at a time
    A little at a time that's how I pay my bill
    That's the story of the working girl
    Always going overboard buying things I can't afford
    In this charge account credit card pay for it a little at a time world
    I want to pay on my layaway here's a dollar on my mink collar Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
