CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

Empty gas tanks.

 

Overdraft fees.

 

Hey, dentists donít work for free.

 

Forget the banks.

 

Get off your knees.

 

You can get cash quick when you're in need.

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

That poverty sucks,

 

You have just learned,

 

First hand, but it wonít keep you down.

 

A few extra bucks,

 

With what you have earned,

 

And your Harley's getting out of impound.

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

When tightening the belt,

 

Leaves you jobless.

 

It hurts, but a winner adjusts.

 

Pitch the hand youíre dealt.

 

Youíll soon have success.

 

Theyíre your money partners without the fuss.

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

No need for appointment.

 

Just give it a trial.

 

Enter without a red cent.

 

Leave with a smile.

 

 

VERSE 4

 

Yo, ladies in need.

 

Donít you holler.

 

Pawn stuff, when your troubles begin.

 

But I canít mislead.

 

For the top dollar,

 

Guys loan more to ladies who show some skin.

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

 

 

VERSE 5

 

Youíve gotten the axe,

 

From your main gig.

 

So hard getting your stuff redeemed.

 

Letís review the facts.

 

You can pay the vig.

 

So your things are safer now than they seemed.

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

 

 

VERSE 6

 

Once battleship sized,

 

at the Horse Shoe.

 

All in, my luck finally ran out.

 

An old boy advised,

 

ďHereís what you should doÖĒ

 

And I learned what winningís really about.

 

He said: ďSon,Ö."

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta get to the pawn shop.

 

Gonna find itís a fast and friendly stop.

 

To get cash when your funds are cut to the bone,

 

Go get a loan.

VERSE 7

 

These little green men,

 

Outside Vegas,

 

Had plans for us in their meat spread.

 

 

Yeah, but in the end,

 

You know what saved us?

 

T'was my talking Chumlee bobblehead.

 

 

CHORUS

 

You gotta turn on the Pawn Stars.

 

From location on Vegas Boulevard.

 

Royalty, for those hefty dudes are the czars.

 

They're cableís trump card.
