THE POOR MAN SONG lyrics

 

I never was a rich man

that's no lie

I never made much

but I got by

but the world keeps on turning

and I am too

and now I don't know

what to do

because it costs too much to be poor

that's for sure

 

 

I don't want to live

out on the street

I don't wanna pay

40 bucks for meat

I don't want to be

the thing I have to be

I don't want to see

the things I have to see

because it costs too much to be poor

that's for sure

 

 

I know how to put in

a hard day's work

but I ain't no fool

I ain't no jerk

but now I don't have

a dime to spare

don't even have a nickel

to do that there

I can't even go out

and pay for a girl

because there's nothing else left

in this whole wide world

the bloodsuckers have taken

over the earth

from the moment you die

until your birth and rebirth

they steal and they murder

they spoil and they rape

and if you are good

then you have no escape

because it costs too much to be poor

that's for sure

 

 

Jesus sat down

right next to be

and gave me some soup

and a cup of tea

and in His hands

he held a bird

and didn't have to say

a single word

that's why it costs so much to be pure

that's for sure

 

it costs so much to be pure

that's for sure
