or
Keb' Mo'

I was afraid to get out of the car
So I just sat there, I just sat there
How was I gonna tell them
That I'd lost my job
I gotta go in there
I'm going in there

So we gathered 'round the table
And I told them the news
But the looks of desperation
Nearly broke me in two

Son, I know you wanted
Them running shoes
They're gonna have to wait
They're gonna have to wait
And darlin' I know you wanted
That dress in the window
We're gonna get it
It just won't be now

Then my little girl looked up at me
With those big round eyes
And the words that she told me
Almost made me cry

(She said) we don't need it
We can do without it
We're gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're gonna stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you

My son said, Daddy
I got sixteen dollars
I want you to take it
I want you to take it
The next door neighbor
Asked me to rake the leaves
And I'm gonna do it
I'm sure gonna do it

'Cause I wanna help you out
Any way I can
It's about time
That I learned to be a man

My wife said, darlin'
We've got all this stuff
Just sittin' there
Just sittin' there
Like grandma's china
And her sterling silverware
It's just sitting there, gathering dust

Ever since she passed away
We ain't used it yet
So let's put it out in the front yard
See what we can get

('Cause) we don't need it
We can do without it
We're gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're gonna stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you

Days and weeks and months went by
The big boss called in the nick of time
I got my check and I brought it home
Yeah it's been tough but we've been blessed
We're gonna get them shoes
And that brand new dress (but you know)

We don't need it
We can do without it
We're gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're gonna stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you

We don't need it
We can do without it
We're gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're gonna stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you
