lyrics

If I had the chance to get up and go
I’d get back to bed smoke a cigarettes instead
I’d procrastinate instead

One shoe on and one shoe off
I’m known as that guy who’s got a smokers cough
I’ve got to get up I’ve got to pay my rent
I got money in my hands and now it’s all been spent

40 oz. sounds like sunshine in a bag
It would be the very best friend that I ever had
It don’t treat me too bad

One shoe on and one shoe off
I’m known as that guy who’s got a smokers cough
I’ve got to get up I’ve got to pay my rent
I got money in my hands and now it’s all been spent

I got to get crooked so that I can see straight
I got to get through all those things that I hate
And all those things that I break

One shoe on and one shoe off
I’m known as that guy who’s got a smokers cough
I’ve got to get up I’ve got to pay my rent
I got money in my hands and now it’s all been spent

Things come together when things fall apart
Past out on the tiles another false start
It’s another start

One shoe on and one shoe off
I’m known as that guy who’s got a smokers cough
I’ve got to get up I’ve got to pay my rent
I got money in my hands and now it’s all been spent
I paid my rent
It came and went
I think that I’m spent

about

Matt Frye New York

"The troubadour Matt Frye, who is from North Carolina and who now lives in Brooklyn, can be found playing cafés in far corners of the borough, which has become as great an influence on his music as his home state has been. The collision between Southern ways and big-city life produces gritty, quirky songs, sung with a breezy lilt."
