I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
Well I ain't got nothing but the shirt on my back and an old two button suit
I walked out on my job about a week ago and now I'm sleepin' in a telephone booth
But I'm a gonna be the richest guy around the day you say you're mine

I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
Well when I first met you babe you nearly made me wreck my old 49 Cadillac
Yeah I knew at a glance that it was you for me I had to have your love by heck
Now I'm right back where that I started from but that ain't gonna change my mind
I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line

Well you made me the top dog on your hill and I was overjoyed
But it didn't take long until the thrill was gone I joined the ranks of the unemployd
Now I'm right back where that I started from but that ain't gonna change my mind
I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
I'm waitin' in your welfare line gimme a hand out I'm waitin' in your welfare line
