Some people gamble as a way to get rich

a1 - 2:59

 

For some reason, I couldn't think of a band that I love that begins with the letter A to start this off. It's obvious, once I searched through my music collection. AC/DC, a1, A-ha, AFI...and as @rhyswynne pointed out, A. I was going to do a theme along their song "Starbucks" but I can't find my starbucks mug anywhere.

 

So I picked a1, the first band that I majorly, majory went fan girl over. And the song "2:59" which was a b-side to "Caught In The Middle". In my own opinion, it should have been a single. This song is probably one of a1's best and it's bloody catchy! The lyrics are cheesy and it's pure boyband. But I love it.

  

Sunday football I got boot off the pitch

Some people gamble as a way to get rich

I gotta find a better way to invest in zeroes, oh

 

They say that rents may damage your health

I'd rather save it all to spend on myself

I got a letter of eviction and I'm no hero

 

Oh, oh, oh, oh

I'm not a saver I'm a spender (Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)

I'm a one weekender

 

What can we do when our two worlds colide?

There's only 10 ways to survive all the chances of knowing

After a hard day of work I go home

I dunno where I'm going, but I'm ready to go

I made a lotta money, but got nothing to show

And now it's 2:59 and I'm still waiting for the train to go home

 

I've been thinking 'bout the meaning of life

Plenty of butter but I don't have a knife

Sure beats the hell outta waiting for a ticket to Rino

 

Watching TV makes me really upset

I wonder why I havent been on it yet

I'm silly waiting for a part in a Tarrantino

 

(Oh, oh, oh, oh) No, no, no, no

I'm not a saver I'm a spender (Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)

I'm a one weekender

There's only 10 ways to survive all the chances of knowing

After a hard day of work I go home

Y'know, I dunno where I'm going, but I'm ready to go

I made a lotta money, but got nothing to show

And now it's 2:59 and I'm still waiting for the train to go home

Yeah, yeah, I said I wanna go home

 

What can we do when our two worlds colide? Oh...

Yeah, I'm waiting for the train to go home
