Ooops I forgot

Ooops, I forgot!!

My friends they saved for a rainy day – lots of money but no time to play
Me, I upped and sailed away – now I need to come back to stay?
It’s not so much that I’m a slob – I never really wanted a job
Didn’t give life too much thought – Ooops, I forgot
So, will you help me now I’m broke? – I wont make noise and I don’t smoke
I’ll watch your house while you’re out shopping, – clean the windows, do the mopping
Please don’t leave me in the cold – I never planned on getting old
Didn’t give it too much thought – Ooops, I forgot
I’ll keep my stuff from off the floors – shine the brass knobs on your doors
I wont consume too much power – I’ll just have a very quick shower
Wont you now lend a hand – I’ve cashed in my pension planned
Didn’t give it too much thought – Ooops, I forgot
There was nothing in my parents wills – and I never learned financial skills
Like the lilies in the fields – don’t know much about net yields
I don’t have assets to allocate – never wanted to accumulate
Didn’t give it too much thought – Ooops, I forgot
A wealthy gal is still out there – truth is, I never had my share
I always thought one would sail my way – never thinking they’d just run away
Wont your kids look after you? – Oh yes!!!, I have children too
Didn’t give it too much thought – Ooops, I forgot
So whilst you sit there reading this song – none of my friends will sing along
I don’t think they’ll find it very funny – knowing I’ll be back when I’m out of money
But I’ll know how much you’ll all care for me –
when it’s money you send to KEEP me at sea
