lyrics

PAY UP

i’m not too proud to pay up
after everything I gave up
i’m not too proud to pay up
i’ve proved I’m worthy enough
every prize has a price
i’ve earned the right
to buy my just rewards

i’m not too proud to pay up
now that i’m making enough
i’m not too proud to pay up
now i’m allowed to touch
you can’t try before you buy
so break my wallet
and you won’t break my heart

(chorus):
i know what i’m getting, i know this life
don’t have a money back guarantee
i know what i’ve gotten, i know the consequence
of getting what you want for free

so i’m not too proud to pay up
i much prefer the set up
i’m not too proud to pay up
for no delusion, and no break up
by the way, when you legalize
you’re less likely to victimize
my dear

(repeat chorus)

(refrain):
nothing is free, yeah
so tell me how much is it gonna be?
nothing is free, yeah
be upfront and i might just pay the fee

i’m not too proud to pay up
worked hard and i have saved up
whether you work out at the gym
or just dig in to your savings
we’re getting what we want
everyone’s got their favourite restaurant
(repeat chorus)
(repeat refrain)

nothing is free and i’m jaded
been frustrated
trying to fit to what society
tells me is the big ideal
but what is real
is that it’s not my destiny
to live up to idealized
commercialized
stupid superficial fantasy
and now that i’m a bit more wealthy
i think it’s healthy
to face this reality, hey hey!

i’m not too proud to pay up
i’ve proved i’m worthy enough
i’m not too proud to pay up
now that i’m making enough
i’m not too proud to pay up
now i’m allowed to touch
i’m not too proud to pay up

nothing is free
that’s the way we’ve built society,
you and me
nothing is free
be upfront and i might just pay the fee
i’m staying healthy psychologically
so tell me how much is it gonna be?

i’m not too proud to pay up...

about

RexySpice Toronto, Ontario

I aim for an aesthetic that is equal parts lyrical wit and acoustic angst. If Chrissie Hynde and Billy Bragg had a kid raised by Madonna and Ani DiFranco, I’d like to think he’d sound just like me. I used to call myself acoustic punk, but that felt rather conflicting and restricting given my love of the Spice Girls. I’m spending 2016 recording a long-overdue album and can’t wait for you hear it. ... more
