Ralph McTell - Interest on the Loan

Now it's come to talking I don't have much to say,

It wouldn't come out right, and so I'll leave it out, oh it's best that way

And I want to get out now cos I need just a couple of drinks.

Can you lend me a little money till I draw my pay?

And I'm leaving like a thief in the night.

But I will try to write to you, or maybe phone

And I'll send you back the money,

But not the love you lent

I could never pay no interest on that loan

You really give me comfort I couldn't take more tenderness

My credit's overdrawn and I just slide deeper in your debt

And I want to get out now cos I need just a couple of drinks.

Can you lend me a little money till pay day next?

Chorus

Why don't you get some rest now you ought to get an early night.

I've got a key so you can lock the door and it'll be all right.

I'll just take my winter coat, it looks like it might rain.

Can you lend me a little money just for the night?

Chorus
