The Bum Song


  • Tekst: onbekend

1. Oh, why don't I work
Like other men do?
How the hell can I work
When there's no work to do?

Hallelujah! I'm a bum,
Hallelujah bum again,
Hallelujah! give us a handout
To revive us again.

2. Oh, I love my boss
And my boss loves me,
And that is the reason
I'm so hungry.

3. Oh, springtime has come
And I'm just out of jail,
Without any money,
Without any bail.

4. I went to a house
and I knocked on the door,
A lady came out, says,
"You've been here before!"

5. I went to a house,
and I asked for some bread;
A lady came out, says,
"The baker is dead."

6. When springtime does come,
Oh won't we have fun,
We'll throw up our jobs
And we'll go on the bum.
