Last Christmas

Last Christmas, I gave you my invoice
But the very next day, you threw it away
This year, to maintain cashflow
I asked you to pay, the amount you still owe

Last Christmas, I gave you my invoice
But the very next day, you threw it away
This year, to maintain cashflow
I asked you to pay, the amount you still owe (still owe)

But what do you know
We're still up shit creek
I'm nagging you
For what is due

Once bitten and twice shy
Next time you need help, don't bother to try
Tell me do you recognise me?
I've lost so much weight, it doesn't surprise me

We developed the app and then launched it
Invoiced and said thanks for your business, I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you asked for help now I know you'd try fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my invoice
But the very next day, you threw it away
This year, to maintain cashflow
I asked you to pay, the amount you still owe (still owe)

Last Christmas, I gave you my invoice
But the very next day, you threw it away
This year, to maintain cashflow
I asked you to pay, the amount you still owe (still owe)

Footnotes
  1. Humour is good for you so embrace it.

  2. I've been on both sides of the table and totally understand what it's like to be strapped for cash and unable to settle accounts. If you're in this position, don't be an asshat. Be upfront and honest, answer the phone and respond to email queries. Make token payments whenever you can and just be human.
