LOANSHARK BLUES
Defender - 1988

Give me til Monday, that`s only a day or two,
Give me til Monday, that`s only a day or two,
I`ll pay you back with interest,
The last thing that I do,
I`ll pay you back with interest,
The last thing that I do.
Yeah....Yeah....
   
Give me til Monday, that`s only a day away,
Give me til Monday, that`s only a day away,
I`m down on my knees,  got one foot in the grave,
Down on my knees, got one foot in the grave.
Yeah....Yeah...Yeah....

Got the loanshark blues,
Got the loanshark blues,
Give me an offer I can`t refuse.
   
Wife needs shoes,  the kids must eat,
Feel so cold, I can`t feel my feet,
Can`t get my hands on one thin dime,
I'm gonna turn to a life of crime,
No work here, so I walk the street,
Sign on the door, I feel I`m beat,
I know you run Pier 15,
You got a grip on all my dreams.
   
I got the loanshark blues,
The loanshark blues,
Give me a number I can`t refuse.
Yeah....
   
Give me til Monday, that`s only a day or two,
Give me til Monday that`s only a day or two,
I`ll pay you back with interest,
The last thing that I do,
Pay you back with interest,
The last thing that I do.
Yeah....
   
Got the loanshark blues,
Got the loanshark blues,
Give me a number I can`t refuse.
Yeah....
   
Roofs got holes, see the sky,
I can`t get straight and I have tried,
I`m in your debt, I`m well aware,
I`ll break the law cause I don`t care.

Living on a knife edge I have been,
But I`m too tough to just give in,
Moving on down with the longshore men,
On the docks we`re locked out again.
   
I got the loanshark blues,
The loanshark blues,
Give me a number I can`t refuse,
I got the loanshark blues,
Got the loanshark blues,
Give me a number I can`t refuse.
Yeah...Yeah...
Loanshark babe.
