you all know what this song is about, but you probably dont know the guy personally. Andy did actually come into the lounge and say those exact words to me, while i was playing Xbox (unfortunately for M$, 'playstation' is a better rhyme...) i literally put down the controller and went and wrote a pop song. then came back an hour later with a fresh supply from my 'pers'onal stash, which my friends have always abbreviated to'pers'
this song has nothing to do with money & this is a hell of a way for my parents to find out i smoke pot. Hey there! love you guys!


Flat mate walks in, eyes ablazed, asked me about, my day, he said: hey dave, gunna fill up the tin, fill up the tin on payday, he said: hey dave, how was your day? im gonna fill up the tin on payday.
i said: OK
but when you fill up the tin, by the time i get home, its empty again, and playstation, its not quite the same, with an empty tin on sunday,
and in your hayday, you used to, fill up the tin, fill up the tin quite often, but in the long run, just how long has it been since you filled up a tin at all.
maybe, its time we packed it all in, empty'd the tin, and started over again, please save me, from going back downstairs and dipping into my purse, for the hundredth time this year.. and i dont even care, if the tin is left bare, fill up the tin, fill up the tin on payday, i know that your dry, you can have some of mine, fill up the tin, fill up the tin on payday, this time il just have red wine, just, fill up the tin, fill up the tin on payday, there'l be no red-cards, no sin-bin, just fill up the tin, fill up the tin.
