It's a Business Doing Pleasure With You

Album: Southern Voice (2009)
Charted: 59
  • I spent fifteen hundred dollars on your damn dog's collar
    Put new spinners on your Escalade
    I swear I almost started cryin'
    When you brought up buyin' diamonds
    Lord I'm spending more than I'm getting paid
    You got more purses than Versace
    Got more rings that Liberace
    Fill your closest full of fancy shoes
    All my credit cards are cookin'
    Girl you don't know what your puttin' me through
    It's a business doing pleasure, a business doing pleasure with you

    You got me walkin' past the fellas
    Holdin' drinks with pink umbrellas
    On some island that I can't even spell
    Then we slide over to Gucci
    Right before we go for sushi
    That's a version of my personal hell
    You just spent all day long trying on Louis Vitton
    There's a thousand things that I'd rather do
    Lord my mom would beat me senseless
    If she saw what I was spending on you
    It's a business doing pleasure, a business doing pleasure with you

    Your gonna break my bank before too long
    I'm taking out a loan
    But when you turn your kind of lovin' on
    Honey I just can't say no, no no no no no no

    Your gonna break my bank before too long
    I'm running out of dough
    But when you turn your kind of magic on
    Honey I just can't say no, no no no

    Maybe I'll play the stock market
    Put some money in my pocket
    Ain't no telling what your gonna need next
    I need to steal a Sherman tank
    Just to break into a bank
    I pray to God this song will be a success
    All my buddies think it's funny
    'Cause I'm spending all my money
    On some honey like there's something to prove
    'Cause for a little of your lovin'
    There ain't nothing much that I wouldn't do
    It's a business doing pleasure, a business doing pleasure with you
    No no no no
    It's a business doing pleasure, a business doing pleasure with you Writer/s: BRETT JAMES, CHAD KROEGER, JOEY MOI
