Whoa,
Check it out
Look at you,
Big boy

I’m making it easy for you to go and give my love away
Spend the check before it even hits the bank
This is what happens when you don’t hear what your mother says,
The signs, the signs, the signs, the signs!

Its you doing it choosing it,
No excuse
How you doing it ruins it,
Now you lose
This is what happens when you living with no consequence,
The signs, the signs, the signs, the signs!

Big mistake
Red flags fly
Right there,
But I close my eyes
Carelessly I let it slide…
A litte late,
Warning signs
Right there,
But I close my eyes
Punish me, I let it slide…

You know how to spend it (woo!)
You know how to blow it up (blow it up, blow it up)
It’s getting so expensive (woo!)
You know how to screw it up (screw it up, screw it up)
(Screw it up, up, up, up, up)

Look at you!

I’m putting my money on you,
I don’t underestimate
I’m not a rookie,
I’m so used to getting played
What do I do?
I’m not a typical or classic case
I try, I try, I try, I try!

How I’m doing it, choosing it,
No excuse
How I’m doing it, ruins it,
Now I lose
This is what happens when you don’t have any common sense
The signs, the signs, the signs, the signs!

Big mistake
Red flags fly
Right there,
But I close my eyes
Carelessly I let it slide…

You know how to spend it (woo!)
You know how to blow it up (blow it up, blow it up)
It’s getting so expensive (woo!)
You know how to screw it up (screw it up, screw it up)
(Screw it up, up, up, up, up)

Whoa!
Look at you!
Whoa, whoa!
Okay

(This is your punishment!)

Big mistake
Red flags fly
Right there,
But I close my eyes
Carelessly I let it slide…

You know how to spend it (whoa!)
You know how to blow it up (blow it up, blow it up)
It’s getting so expensive (whoa!)
You know how to screw it up (screw it up, screw it up)
(Screw it up, up, up, up, up)
