Mike And The Moonpies Debut New Working Class Anthem, “Paycheck To Paycheck”

Talkin’ ’bout some boot stompin’ honky-tonkin’ country music..

There are very few bands out there that can instantly take you back to a Texas honky-tonk in the ’70s like Mike and the Moonpies, and they’ve perfected it.

Today, they’re adding another badass song to their arsenal with the new working class anthem, “Paycheck to Paycheck.” Releasing it on a Monday? Couldn’t be more appropriate…

The song takes you through the eyes of a blue-collar guy who has bills stacked up to his ears, but come the weekend, he’s gonna be kickin’ back pounding beers out on the town.

The chorus speaks for itself:

“I’m livin’ paycheck to paycheck
One quarter at a time
I just dropped one in the jukebox
I can’t hold myself in line
Tell the IRS to shove it
And give me eleven twenty-nine
I’m livin’ paycheck to paycheck
And I don’t waste a dime”
