My wife has a charge card
Well, I got it the other day
I owe five hundred dollars
Yes, just for yesterday

I said, "Honey, here's a present,
go out an' shop around,
get a couple a-dresses,
an' browse around downtown"

She did just what I told her,
bought one, two or three
Then came home lookin' silly
Makin' goo-goo eyes at me

Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card
Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card
Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card

I said, "Did you get your dresses?"
She said, "Yes, one or two,
but I had to get me some shoes,
an' I needed some jewelry, too"

She had two hundred dollar dresses
That I could-a made, an' I can't sew
Fifty dollar pair a shoes,
an' I thought you so an' so

Said, "What about the jewelry?"
As calmly as I could
She said, "Honey, you'll love them,
they're pure, African wood"

Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card
Mastercharge (mastercharge, heh-heh), I'll break an' bury her card
Mastercharge (go mastercharge on the thing), I'll break an' bury her card

Let's charge it, let's charge it!

"They were two hundred dollars, an' I paid one an' a half!"

I just didn't believe it, so mad, I just had to laugh
I could see in my mind, on a horse like Paul Revere
I hate to check my mailbox, 'cause these bills keep comin' here

Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card
Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card
Mastercharge (mastercharge), I'll break an' bury her card

Yeah, run up all my bills
"Charge it!"
Ev'ry time I look around, it's "charge, charge!"

"Let's charge it!"
All she can say

"A let's charge it!"
"Mastercharge!"
"Oh, I have a Mastercharge!"
"Oh, I have a BankAmericard, too!"
"Mastercharge!"
"Oh, would you mind chargin' it, please?"

Now don't you get too much on it, now
Get too much chargin', now

"Let's charge it!"
