Bum Broke

Post by audiofool » Tue Jun 11, 2013 1:36 am

It's a living
if living is a joke
beggars belief
I'm bum broke

it's a drag
I have no fag to smoke
I sing the blues cos
I'm bum broke

you justify your actions
no misfortune sticks to you
I get no satisfaction
watching the privileged few

you can't buy peace of mind
or reinvent the past
cash in your conscience
hope that the thrill will last

you'll get yours sometime
there's plenty going 'round
you'll get your dollar's worth
before losing every pound

you're fast dying
I'm ready to croak
I'm a poor excuse (what's the use)
I'm bum broke

you're as heartless
as an artichoke
you're artificial, it's official
you're bum broke
