POVERTY


UP IN THE MORNING WITH THE SUN
WORK ALL DAY TIL THE EVENING COMES
LESSEN THE COST TO MY HANDS
LORD HAVE MERCY ON THE WORKING MAN
I'M GONNA DIE JUST LIKE I LIVE , IN POVERTY......


MY PAY GO'S DOWN AND THE TAXES GO UP
I DRINK MY TEA FROM A BROKEN CUP
BETWEEN MY WOMEN AND UNCLE SAM
CAN'T FIGURE OUT JUST WHO I AM
OH I'M GONNA DIE JUST LIKE I LIVE , IN POVERTY.....


OH LORD IT'S HARD HARD YEAH... WHEN IT'S SAD.
EVERYBODYS TRYIN YEAH. BUT NOBODY REALLY CARES.


CAN'T SAVE A DIME, CAN'T FIND WHAT I SPENT
CAN'T PAY MY BILLS, NO I CAN'T EVEN PAY MY RENT
OLD LADYS FUSSEN, KIDS ARE CRYING
THEY WON'T LET ME JOIN THE WELFARE LINE
OH I'M GONNA DIE JUST LIKE I LIVE , IN POVERTY.....
