(chorus)
You get a whip and
I get a saw, honey.
You get a whip and
I get a saw, babe.
You get a whip and
I get a saw.
One good trend
pays for 'em all.
Honey, sugar baby, mine.

(verses)

What do we do when the
drawdown comes, honey?
What do we do when it
gets really big, babe?
What do we do when it
gets even bigger.
We stick to the plan and keep
pulling the trigger.
Honey, sugar baby, mine.

What do we do when we
catch a trend, honey?
What do we do when we
catch a trend, babe?
What do we do when we
catch a trend?
We ride that sucker
to the end.
Honey, sugar baby, mine.

What do we do when the
market breaks through, honey?
What do we do when the
market breaks through, babe?
What do we do when the
market breaks through?
Our stops are in,
so there's nothing to do.
Honey, sugar baby, mine.

How do we know when our
risk is right, honey?
How do we know when our
risk is right, babe.
How do we know when our
risk is right?
We make a lot of money and
we sleep at night.
Honey, sugar baby, mine.
