Lyrics

Theres a girl who lives down the track In a little shack made of timber wood And her clothes are all hand-me-downs From the folks in town who treat her so good Though she hasnt got a dime Im so proud that shes all mine cause to me shes a princess in rags

Now her dad, hes a worn-out man Prayin if he can make enough to eat And her mom cleans for everyone Till the day is done just to make ends meet All her wealth is in her charms And the sweetness of her arms How I love my poor princess in rags I know some day Ill find a way To take her out of this old place Ill work and slave, scrimp and save To change her rags to silk and lace Though it hurts and my body aches From the pain it takes just to set things right But for now I must be content With each moment spent in her arms each night Shes the only girl for me And some day its gotta be Just me and my princess in rags Shes the only girl for me And some day its gotta be Just me and my princess in rags
