Expensive Being Poor

Expensive Being Poor

TV Smith

Expensive being poor
And the car is of the road
But I never had a car
But I pay more for food
But the supermarkets too far

It's expensive being poor
Because everything cost more
Knocking on a closing door
It's expensive being poor
Someone throw me down some crumbs
I will eat them off the floor
It's expensive being poor
But I look good when I get desperate

And the box is on the fritz
It's a black and white, or was
I tried taking it to bits
Now the picture's just a grey fuss

It's expensive being poor
Because everything cost more
Someone pick me off the floor
It's expensive being poor
How can I live with what I did
When the cinema is 6 quid'
It's expensive being poor
But I look good when I get desperate

Let the good times roll
Into a bottomless hole
With job friends and future
My ideal home furniture
Let the trumpets sound
As my house falls down

And the dust begins to clear
And I'm lying on the ground
And I'm standing on a path
In an unknown part of town
And the path leads me away
Over hills and out of sight
In the blazing sun by day
And the hanging moon by night
And I wind up in a place
Where I never have to count
And I never see the waves
As I push my leaking boat out

It's expensive being poor
Because everything hurts more
Knocking on a bolted door
It's expensive being poor
Someone throw me down some crumbs
I will eat them off the floor
It's expensive being poor
But I look good when I get desperate
