​Champagne Habits

This song is by Eric Bibb and appears on the album Natural Light (2003).

Son, you got champagne habits
On a beer salary -
Mama keeps tellin' me
Judgin' from the gifts you buy your wife
Musta been a sultan in your last life -
You worry me with your champagne habits
On a beer salary

Better get your head out the clouds
Find out what a dollar's worth
Down on earth
Takin' from Peter to pay off Paul
Aw, son, you're headed for a fall
Boy, you worry me
With your champagne habits
On that beer salary

Mama, now don't be worried
I'll be rollin' in dough someday -
I always say
When I become a millionaire
I'll buy you a mansion anywhere
So, don't worry about me
With my champagne habits
On my beer salary

Mama, don't worry 'bout me
I was born lucky as a man can be

Friends call me dapper
'Cause I do love my spats an' my fancy hats
I don't mind to ride the bus
But, I must say, a limo's much less fuss
Talkin' 'bout champagne habits
On a beer salary

Son, you got champagne habits
On a beer salary
Mama keeps tellin' me
Spendin' cash wherever you please
You act like money grows on trees
With your champagne habits
On that beer salary

An' I say, mama don't worry 'bout me
I was born lucky as a man can be
With my champagne habits
On my beer salary
