She awoke at six,
Before her husband left for work
Both are 23,
With 5 month old Liza- you see

Soon the "Billman" called
For the rent, the gas, the phone, and all
She owes $890,
But agreed to pay half on Friday

CHORUS
You'll find,
People like them,
Everywhere-
The working poor
But agreed to pay half on Friday

CHORUS

You'll find,
People like them,
Everywhere-
The working poor

You, Me,
No money anymore

Why are we
The working poor
No more

Both dreamed of the day
They knew they couldn't afford
Then the baby came,
Money problems, now they're strugglin'
That's their little boy,
He makes them happy in their new family

CHORUS
You'll find,
People like them,
Everywhere-
The working poor

You, Me,
No money anymore

Why are we,
The working poor

Everything's alright,
John's coming home for a nice quiet night
Billman made their calls,
Tomorrow's another day for sure

CHORUS
