My daddy said
"Son, don't you come to me cryin'
 Cause money don't make you a happy man"
He said the grass is always greener
Any place except where you stand

And some born to lose
And sing them poor boy blues 

 Watch out

I've lived uptown, downtown 
Lord I've lived everywhere
 Almost drowned in the puddle of my own sweat I swear 
I believe it's due time I get my mansion in ole Bel Air

But I'm still singin' those poor boy blues 
Poor boy blues 
You don't know how I'm feeling baby
 Until you're wearing my shoes 
Sure as I'm standing here
I got them poor boy blues 

 Friday night I get tanked up
And tossed in the local slam
At least I get three square meals  Until someone gets me out of this jam
In the meanwhile all my green 
Is going to Uncle Sam


Walk this dog
