I think that I will never know,
What makes these customers
pay so slow
The salesman said
“Their credit’s great,”
We rush the order and begin to wait,
The due date comes and then It goes
That’s when we hear
“the Tale of Woes.”
The checkbook’s lost, the boss is ill,
Our dog Betsy, ate your bill
‘Our bookkeeper just got out of jail,
we used your check
to make the bail”.
“we had a fire and then a flood.”
“We’ll need a P.O.D.
signed in blood”
Next time I hear,
“Oh they’re as good as gold”
I’ll quickly put them on
