F
Well, I want to try and hold my head up high
        F
In this busted-up Pinto truck conversion
    C
between the broken concrete and the cloudy sky
           Bb
Well, you have to make an effort with me
        F                          Bb
Can you make it look like you're chauffeuring me?
      F                      C                 F
There's enough gas to get us home now if we glide                F

        F
When we took this job I thought that you knew the deal
           F
I told the boss we had a Mercedes-Benz
           C
but all we got in our yard is a steering wheel
        Bb
Well, I can't borrow this tuxedo much longer
               F                Bb
Well, we might have to cut and sell your long hair
F                C                           F
I don't mind you wearing a wig, but I won't steal

            Bb
Yeah, well, honey, we can't afford to look this cheap
           Bb
We need to make it look like we're high class,
          C
so we'll haul ourself on, we can't be beat
        Bb
I can't help but wonder, this time next year,
           F                         Bb
will we be drinking Dom Perignon or reheated beer?
      F               C                 F
Well, honey, we can't afford to look this cheap.

        F
We have to keep up appearances as long as we can
        F
There's too much to lose, our social status,
          C
well, our ice machine, and our ceiling fan
            Bb
And if they find out that we ain't real songwriters
    F                  Bb
That we go Dutch on cigarette lighters
 F                        C                  F
We're gonna lose the paradise that's in our hands


      Bb
Well, honey, we can't afford to look this cheap
       Bb
Got an image to live up to here
       C
In the best motel on Imposter Street
          Bb
While the Joneses are waltzing off to dinner
   F
We're gluing old lottery tickets together
          Bb
Trying to make us a winner
         F               C             F
Well, honey, we can't afford to look this cheap



       F         C              Bb         F
