Story behind the song
The song is written for my husband, who is a musician, and as such...he ALWAYS needs new 'toys'...like all musicians do. It's a happy and funny country song. Any musician will recognize the theme I guess...or their spouse will! Be sure to hear the endning! I find it funny too, that my husband actually sings background harmony vocal on this song. Inspirated also by two old Country Classics: 'It's Crying Time Again' and 'Ruby'.
Lyrics
It's Buying Time Again. They say that power shopping, is a woman thing to do, but I have never met someone, who can compete with you! When we talk about it, I say we've got all we need, but you come up with stuff, that you can't live without indeed! And so it's buying time again, you're gonna leave me now, I can see that 'buy-away-look' in your eyes! I try to hold you back, but you are slippery somehow, and not at all affected by my sighs! I always try to stop you, but I do not have that skill, cause when it comes to buying 'stuff', you've got an iron-will. You talk and talk about it, 'til the day that I get weak! and with the cutest smile, you go and find the stuff you seek! And then it's buying time again, .... I know my dear it hasn't got a thing to do with greed! As long as we've got space and money: buy all that you need! I know it keeps you happy for day or two at least!... and then you'll think, of something new, I didn't know you've missed! You're leaving now, cause I've just heard the slamming of the door, the way I know I've heard it slam, one hundred times before! You've found another guitar, and there's a lot to save,... and by the way, 'we cannot take, the money to our grave'! And then it's buying time again, you're gonna leave me now, I can see that 'buy-away-look' in your eyes! I try to hold you back, but you are slippery somehow, and not at all affected, you're not at all affected, - oh no you're not at all affected, by my sighs! Outro: ...Oh honey, - do ’we’ really need another guitar in the house? ...Oh honey, do you really need another banjo? ...Oh honey!!! You've already got TWO steel guitars...you can't play on more than one!!! ...Oh Lord! We need a bigger house!!!!
