The Ryan Szanyi preferred live version of 'I Gotta Pay' recorded at Blue Studios in Hackney, London Late 2017.


I've gotta pay for mistakes I've made,
I'll get a round in if you feel the same.

I've gotta pay to for my education,
Until my great great grandchild's graduation.

Well she's gotta pay to see Karl Marx's grave,
and she had to pay triple on Seatwave.

And he's gotta pay for his operation,
to liberate life from death's limitations.

I've gotta pay to piss in the station,
for a the socially awkward situation.
This does does not include the administration,
the booking-fee or the seat allocation.

But we just want to live in a montage of highlights,
you and and me running through all the red lights.
But we've gotta pay for a virtual stage
to prove we're alive in the digital age.


from I Gotta Pay, released June 17, 2019
Mixed By Margo Broome at Hermitage Works Studios.
