Valary asked in Entertainment & MusicMusic · 1 decade ago

Is this the song I think it is? Where can I get it?

I've been praying all the week through

At home, at work and on the bus

I've been praying I can keep you

And to earn enough for us

What is this song? Is it Extrovert by XTC? If so, please tell me where I can download it? I can't find their album in stores.

Oh and does anyone know where I can watch Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen online for free? Thx.

    the song is called Earn Enough for Us by XTC. Its from their album Skylarking.

    I've been praying all the week through

    At home, at work and on the bus

    I've been praying I can keep you

    And to earn enough for us

    I can take humiliation

    And hurtful comments from the boss

    I'm just praying by the weekend

    I can earn enough for us

    Found a house that won't repair itself

    With it's windows cracking

    And a roof held together with holes

    Just because we're at the bottom of the ladder

    We shouldn't be sadder

    Than others like us

    Who have goals for the betterment of life

    Glad that you want to be my wife, but honest

    I've been praying all the week through

    At home at work and on the bus

    I've been praying I can keep you

    And to earn enough for us

    So you're saying that we're going to be three

    Now, a father's what I'll be

    Don't get me wrong, I'm so proud

    But the belt's already tight

    I'll get another job at night, but honest

    I can take humiliation

    And hurtful comments from the boss
