Lyrics

I've gotten down To my last pair of shoes Can't even win a nickel bet Because them that's got Are them that gets And I ain't got nothing yet I'm sneaking in and out Ducking my landlord All I seem to do Is stay in debt Because them that's got Yeah, are them that gets And I tell you all I ain't got nothing yet

That old saying Them that's got Are them that gets Is somethin I can't see If you gotta have something Before you can get something How do you get your first Is still a mystery to me I see folk with Long cars and fine clothes That's why they're Called the smarter set Because they manage to get When only them that's Got supposed to get And I ain't got nothing yet That old saying Them that's got Are them that gets Is somethin I can't see If you gotta have something Before you can get something How do you get your first Is still a mystery to me I see folk with Long cars and fine clothes That's why they're Called the smarter set Because they manage to get When only them that's Got supposed to get And I ain't got nothing yet Whoa, I tell you all I ain't found nothing yet You know I just Don't understand it I can't seem to get A nickle or a dime For a cup of coffee I need a hamburger In fact, a hot dog Wouldn't be too bad I would just be grateful If I could get my hands On most anything
