VERSE 1

 

Ah sweet thing, I was kinda

 

Sick a couple days last week.

 

Didnít work while I was off my feet.

 

I donít wanna tell your Mom, your Dad,

 

When finances look bleak.

 

Donít put our problems out on the street.

 

 

Why have folks jawiní on

 

A little thing like this.

 

No need for everyone

 

To know our business.

 

 

And thatís why...

 

 

We need a pawn loan.

 

Thereís no need for us

 

To do something rash.

 

Yeah, We need a pawn loan.

 

Walk in with some stuff,

 

Walk out with some cash.

 

We need a loan.

 

Yes we do!

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Hey, Iíd pawn my shot gun,

 

But Iím gonna need it,

 

Next week when pheasant season starts.

 

And while my generator would,

 

Be a good choice,

 

Itís broken and Iím waiting for parts.

 

 

 

But to keep the power on,

 

Now baby, hereís the thing.

 

All we've got fit to pawn,  

 

Is your wedding ring.

 

So babyÖ?

 

 

CHORUS

 

We need a pawn loan.

 

Thereís no need for us

 

To do something rash.

 

Yeah, we need a pawn loan.

 

Walk in with your ring,

 

Walk out with some cash.

 

We need a loan.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

Howís business good people,

 

Here at Pawn Castle?

 

Yep, true that, itís the

 

first time Iíve stopped here.

 

Iíve worked with that store across town.

 

You know who I mean.

 

But getting thereís a hassle,

 

with the traffic and all.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Say, why not give you folks a shot,

 

Before I drive to Decatur.

 

Would yíall loan on what Iíve gotÖ

 

A shot gun and a generator?

 

Yeah, it runs great.

 

 

CHORUS

 

We need a pawn loan.

 

Thereís no need for us

 

To do something rash.

 

Yeah, we need a pawn loan.

 

Walk in with some stuff,

 

Walk out with some cash.

 

We need a loan.
