"No Presents for Me" as written by and Curtis Ponton....
Standing on the platform
Waiting for my train
Hoping I'll be better off
When I'm back again
Leaving here this morning
Such a better fate
Want the luxuries of life
Having money brings

There's one thing that I learned about life
You never get more than you give
You've got to work for the things that you want
It's in your hands the life you live
I can see there's no presents for me
Fame or fortune will never be free

Had my share of bad times
Bad times in this town
Lately these surroundings
Seem to bring me down
Money goes to money
This I know is true
I can see there's no presents for me
There'll be none for you

There's one thing that I learned about life
You never get more than you give
You've got to work for the things that you want
It's in your hands the life you live
I can see there's no presents for me
Fame or fortune will never be free
