WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  cake on the shelf,
                 take it for yourself.
                 run out the door
                 while the store clerk yells for help.
                 it came from nowhere,
                 fell out of the sky,
                 pennies from heaven
                 in a half-baked lie.
                 stealing a piece of the pie.

      CHORUS A:  I pay the price
                 when they raise the price.
                 I pay the tax
                 when they raise the tax.
                 I pay the guys
                 who clean up your trash.
                 and I pay, pay, pay, pay, pay.

            II.  stealing the news
                 from a paper machine,
                 sold on the corner for a
                 handful of green.
                 now you're sellin' disease
                 for a jar of Vaseline.
                 now you're a charity
                 hospital queen.
                 don't even mention nicotine.  'cause...

                 (repeat chorus A)

      CHORUS B:  I pay the price
                 when they raise the price.
                 I pay the premium
                 when they raise the premium.
                 I pay the guys
                 who clean up your trash.
                 and I pay, pay, pay, pay.
                 and I pay, pay, pay, pay.
