Some's got oil and some's got none And I can't buy me a Cinnamon Bun I'm out plowin' and my feet are sore And I'm lookin' for more in '64

The poor old farmer is in need He's makin' his life growin' weeds Works all year to make a good crop Starts to sell and the prices drop Yeah, prices are gitten lower and lower And he's lookin' for more in '64 (......?.......) He stayed 10 years in the second grade Can't draw unemployment, he ain't never been employed A government cheque he ain't never enjoyed His stomach is empty and his britches are torn And he's lookin' for more in '64 I'm overcome by the outcome of high income We get all the taxes, we ain't got none Some people's livin' like a special pup Taxes are stackin' us poor people up Bill collectors formin' around the door And I'm lookin' for more in '64 I have a part-time-job a makin' good Totin' sacks of sugar through the woods The (revenue) man turned the damper down Just helpin' Castro sell a few pounds Now, out of a job, my wife starts to roar She wants more in '64 Now, me and my wife got 15 kids We don't know yet just what we did You don't know just how I feel Tryin' to get 'em all to brush after every meal Yeah, 15 kids that we adore And we're lookin' for more in '64 Now, Kruschef said I want somethin' to eat How about sellin' me some of your wheat We said sure, he says understand I want it on the easy payment plan Now he still owes for the time before An' he's a lookin' for more in '64 Yeah, some's got oil and some's got none And I can't buy me a Cinnamon Bun I'm out plowin' and my feet are sore And I'm lookin' for more in '64 Yeah, lookin' for more in '64 Sure wish somebody'd help me out Fighin' lookout. Back in '63 I won't be round in '65 Sure wish somebody'd let me have some....
