Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out
Once I lived the life of a millionaire, Spending my money, I didn't care I carried my friends out for a good time, Buying bootleg liquor, champagne and wine Then I began to fall so low, I didn't have a friend, and no place to go So if I ever get my hand on a dollar again, I'm gonna hold on to it till them eagle's grin Nobody knows you when you down and out In my pocket not one penny, And my friends I haven't any But If I ever get on my feet again, Then I'll meet my long lost friend It's mighty strange, without a doubt Nobody knows you when you down and out I mean when you down and out Mmmmm, when you're down and out, Mmmmm, not one penny And my friends I haven't any, Mmmmm, well I felt so low Nobody wants me round their door, Mmmmm, without a doubt, No man can use you wen you down and out I mean when you down and out
