Why don’t you work like other people do
How the hell can I work when there’s no work to do

Hallelujah I’m a Bum, Hallelujah Bum again,
Hallelujah give us a handout to revive us again

I went to a house and I knocked on the door
The lady said scram bum you’ve been here before

Hallelujah I’m a Bum, Hallelujah Bum again,
Hallelujah give us a handout to revive us again

I went to a bar and I asked for a drink
They gave me a cup and said there’s the sink’

Hallelujah I’m a Bum, Hallelujah Bum again,
Hallelujah give us a handout to revive us again

I love my boss she’s a good friend of mine
That’s why I’m starving out on the breadline

Hallelujah I’m a Bum, Hallelujah Bum again,
Hallelujah give us a handout to revive us again

They say why don’t you save all the money you earn
I say if I didn’t eat I’d have money to burn

Hallelujah I’m a Bum, Hallelujah Bum again,
Hallelujah give us a handout to revive us again
