Expensive being poor
And the car is of the road
But I never had a car
But I pay more for food
But the supermarkets too far

Itґs expensive being poor
Because everything cost more,
Knocking on a closing door,
Itґs expensive being poor,
Someone throw me down some crumbs
I will eat them off the floor,
Itґs expensive being poor
But I look good when I get desperate.

And the box is on the fritz,
Itґs a black and white, or was,
I tried taking it to bits
Now the pictureґs just a grey fuss.

Itґs expensive being poor
Because everything cost more,
Someone pick me off the floor,
Itґs expensive being poor,
How can I live with what I did
When the cinema is 6 quid?
Itґs expensive being poor
But I look good when I get desperate.

Let the good times roll
Into a bottomless hole
With job friends and future
My ideal home furniture,
Let the trumpets sound
As my house falls down.

And the dust begins to clear
And Iґm lying on the ground,
And Iґm standing on a path
In an unknown part of town,
And the path leads me away
Over hills and out of sight,
In the blazing sun by day
And the hanging moon by night,
And I wind up in a place
Where I never have to count,
And I never see the waves
As I push my leaking boat out.

Itґs expensive being poor
Because everything hurts more,
Knocking on a bolted door,
Itґs expensive being poor.
Someone throw me down some crumbs
I will eat them off the floor,
Itґs expensive being poor
But I look good when I get desperate..
