Dear landlord  Please don't put a price on my soul
My burden is heavy 
My dreams are beyond control
When that steamboat whistle blows 
I'm gonna give you all I got to give
And I do hope you receive it well
Dependin' on the way you feel that you live

Dear landlord  Please heed these words that I speak 
I know you've suffered much
But in this you are not so unique 
All of us, at times, we might work too hard
To have it too fast and too much
And anyone can fill his life up with things 
He can see but he just cannot touch

Dear landlord  Please don't dismiss my case
I'm not about to argue 
I'm not about to move to no other place
Now, each of us has his own special gift
And you know this was meant to be true
And if you don't underestimate me
I won't underestimate you
