Aruba Is for Many Out Of Reach

Life once had us running to the bank.
Banking on the prospect,
That investments in a future...
Would produce security.
Security fantasized,
To feed those whims and needs...
Afforded to please.

We believed that banking,
Was then a safe direction...
For a quality of life,
Respected to protect..
In quality ease!

If this was yesterday...
It would be okay,
To think about Aruba...
And snoozing on the beach.

If 'this' was yesterday...
We'd put our dimes away.
But unlike those yesterdays...
Today pinching dimes,
Gets rent timely paid!

If this was yesterday,
It would be okay...
To think about Aruba!
Just to snooze on the beach.
And...
Oiling heated skin,
Rubbing sand off our feet.

If 'this' was yesterday...
We'd put our dimes away.
But unlike those yesterdays...
A rent that's needed to be paid,
Is just a pinch away.

And today Aruba,
Is for many out of reach.

Because today Aruba,
Is a dream hard to keep!

If this was yesterday,
It would be okay...
To think about Aruba!
Just to snooze on the beach.
And...
Oiling heated skin,
Rubbing sand off our feet.

If 'this was yesterday...
We'd put our dimes away.
But unlike those yesterdays...
The rent is pinched to pay!

We wanted a retirement,
Reflected in ease.
Lazy in Aruba,
On a Sun drenching beach.

If this was yesterday,
It would be okay...
To think about Aruba!
As we snoozed the day away.

If 'this was yesterday...
We'd put those dimes away.
But unlike those yesterdays...
The rent is pinched to pay!

We wanted a retirement,
Reflected in ease.
Lazy in Aruba,
On a Sun drenching beach.

If this was yesterday,
It would be okay...
To think about Aruba!
And snoozing on the beach.

If this was yesterday,
It would be okay...
To think about Aruba!
And snoozing on the beach.

If this was yesterday,
It would be okay...
To think about Aruba!
And snoozing on the beach.

But unlike those yesterdays,
Aruba's out of reach.

If this was yesterday,
We'd put our dimes away!
If this was yesterday,
We'd put our dimes away!
If this was yesterday,
We'd put our dimes away!
To save up for retirement,
And feeling okay.

If this was yesterday,
We'd put our dimes away!
If this was yesterday,
We'd put our dimes away!
If this was yesterday,
We'd put our dimes away!
But today's not yesterday.
Today we pinch to pay!

Today is not yesterday.
Today we pinch to pay!

Today is not yesterday.
Today we pinch to pay!

Forgettin' 'bout Aruba.
Today we pinch to pay!
Forgettin' 'bout Aruba.
Today we pinch to pay!
Today we pinch to pay!
Forgettin' 'bout Aruba.
Pinching pennies not to save!

Pinching everything,
For a rent to get paid!

You've got to feel it,
Ooo...
The risk that we take,
Pinching everything,
For a rent to get paid!
You've got to feel it,
Ooo...
The risk that we take,
Pinching everything,
For a rent to get paid!

You've got to feel it,
Ooo...
The risk that we take.
You've got to feel it,
Ooo...
The risk that we take.
Pinching everything,
For a rent to get paid!

NOTE:
I had been torn been which title
to use. Sooo...there are TWO.

1. Aruba Is for Many Out of Reach...and,
2. Lazy In Aruba
