about

We enjoy paying with exact change more than, we care about hurrying for the people behind us in line. We feel guilty, and we're sorry. We're not sorry, why have coins if we never get to use them?

lyrics

It piles on the desk
Collects in every crevice
It makes an awful mess
I just cannot live like this
But I can win
Three quarters a dime two nickels and four cents
This perfect ten
Will match any decimal. Have patience.

I'm sorry but when exactly did it become a crime
To pay with exact change when others are in line

Is it too much to take?
My predilection in stride
It isn't fair to make
Your value system into mine
It's just like you
To hold out your hand then curl it in a fist
You know it's true
Get off my back and listen to this

I'm sorry but when exactly did it become a crime
To pay with exact change when others are in line

1,2,3,25, 50, 60, 65, 70...
$3.71 exactly

The crosses on my back
may bore a hole straight through me
but if I don't react
you'll know that I'm not sorry

I'm sorry but when exactly did it become a crime
To pay with exact change when others are in line
I'm sorry but when exactly did it become a crime
To pay with exact change when others are in line
