She Got the Goldmine, I Got the Shaft
The phrase "got the shaft" is often used when someone gets the bad end of a bargain. e.g. "I totally just got the shaft!"
The phrase originates from the 1962 song "She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)" written by Jerry Reed.
The song goes:
She got the goldmine (She got the goldmine)
I got the shaft (I got the shaft)
They split it right down the middle
And then they give her the better half
Well, it all sounds sorta funny
But it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine, I got the shaft.
She's never gonna call me, and i'm not going to message her back. Its amazing though. I knew i had never met her.
