Take a loan from me, I’ll fleece you all I can
Miss a payment, makes me a rich man.
You thought you were poor before you met me,
I’ll make you poorer and poorer, you’ll see.
You were desperate for a loan,
You took one from me, don’t moan.
You accepted my extortionate interest rates,
I am not in this business to make mates.
Miss a payment and you’ll owe me a lot more.
I’ll come to your house and bang on your door.
Miss two payments, I’ll have the key to your house
I am a loan shark , I’m a louse.
You’ll be scared and try to avoid me.
I’ll come to your house and you’ll make me a cup of tea.
I’ll bring a big van and strip your house of all your goods,
But don’t think you are out of the woods.
I prey on people like you,
Take advantage of the more and more desperate few
I am a loan shark, that’s my job
To make your life a misery, to get my few bob.
I’ll prey on your family and friends.
You’re in debt with me, it never ends
I’ll put you in hell then you will shout
I am reporting you, I want to get out.
