It appears money was no doubt an obsession for The Kinks a many songs as they had recorded on the subject."Low Budget" is a song that merely cuts to the chase in regards to the difficulty of living within one's means.

"Low Budget" is from the album witht he same name and released in 1979.

"I'm on a low budget,

I'm not cheap, you understand,

I'm just a cut price person in a low budget land

Excuse my shoes they don't quite fit

They're a special offer and they hurt me a bit

Even my trousers are giving me pain

They were reduced in a sale so I shouldn't complain."
