"Nobody Knows You (When You're Down And Out)" as written by Gert-jan Blom, Menno Daams, Robert Veen and Jimmie Cox....
Once I lived the life
of a millionaire
Spending my money
Oh I didn't care
Taking my friends out
For a mighty good time
Oh we'd drink that good gin
Champagne and wine

But oh just as soon
As my money got low
I couldn't find nobody
And I had no place to go
And if I ever get my hands
On a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on
Till the eagle wins
Cause I found out

Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out

Lord have mercy
Yeah, yeah, now listen
Now in your pocket
There's not one penny
And all of them good friends
You found out you haven't got any
Nobody come around
But the landlord and the taxman
Your ex-wife who says
She wants more alimony
Then there's a knock on the door
And it's a woman you don't know
Says she's having your baby
She'll walk on in

But oh just as soon
as the money roll in
Here they all come sayings
That they're you're long lost friends
But if I ever get my hands
On a dollar again
I believe, I believe I'll hold on
Till the eagle wins
Cause I found out

Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out

Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out

Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out

Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Nobody, nobody, nobody
