Lyrics

I got the hungries for your love And I'm waiting in your welfare line Well, I ain't got nothing But the shirt on my back And an old two button suit I walked outta my job About a week ago And now I'm sleeping In a telephone booth But I'm a gonna be The richest guy around The day you say you're mine I got the hungries for your love And I'm waiting in your welfare line

Well, when I first saw you, babe You nearly made me wreck My old '49 Cadillac I knew at a glance That it was you for me I had to have your love by heck I'm gonna follow you, baby Wherever you go I got nothing to lose But my time I got the hungries for your love And I'm waiting in your welfare line Well, you made me The top dog on your hill And I was overjoyed But it didn't take long Till the thrill was gone I joined the ranks Of the unemployed Now, I'm right back where That I started from But that ain't gonna Change my mind I got the hungries for your love And I'm waiting in your welfare line Yeah, I'm waiting in your welfare line Gimme a handout I'm waiting in your welfare line
