Lyrics

The lamp is on the fritz and the TV don't work
I missed a show about JFK
The fridge is kinda hot, but the heater is not
I even have a flat souffle

So I'm pulling out the Visa, yes Im going online
I'm gonna buy new things this way
But with my nana uh uh'ing and her finger in my face
She had a few choice things to say

Fix it up
Wear it out
Make it do or do without
Things are hard all over these days

Fix it up
Wear it out
Make it do or do without
Be smart, don't throw it away

But my 'puter seemed neutered, no it wouldn't turn on
I wondered why it wasn't ok
So I climbed into my bed, an aching in my head
Again I heard my nana say

Fix it up
Wear it out
Make it do or do without
Things are hard all over these days
Fix it up
Wear it out
Make it do or do without
Be smart, don't throw it away

So I jumped into the jeep with these tired ol' feet
I'll take my moolah to the mall and play
But the starter wouldn't turn, smelled like something burned
Now I need a new Chevrolet

An' my smarty pants cell, It wouldn't work as well
I guess I'll cry or maybe pray
But my nana said dear, there ain't nothing to fear
Pay attention to the things I say

Fix it up
Wear it out
Make it do or do without
Things are hard all over these days
Fix it up
Wear it out
Make it do or do without
Be smart, don't throw it away

Well it took about a month for the tables to turn
Let me tell ya 'bout her ex named Ray
Nana's birthday came and went, but no flowers got sent
So I finally had a chance to say

Fix'm up

Wear'm out

Make'm do or do without

Things are hard for a girl your age

Fix'm up

Wear'm out

Make'm do or do without

Be smart, don't throw'm away
