lyrics

Haven't got a job or a penny to my name
I'm sewing up the holes in the rags that we call clothes
Not a single crumb we spent that money getting drunk
To keep our spirits up

To forget the dreams that didn't come to pass
The memories of better days long gone
Even the better ones yet to come
Broke and Drunk

We don't care about riches
We don't care about the fame
All we want to do is go on tour with our tunes
But how will we ever get our music off the ground
When the city keeps shutting all the places we play down
Even if we had a stage nobody'd be there anyway
They're tuckered out from the 9 to 5
They watch cable and drink box wine

To forget the dreams that didn't come to pass
The memories of better days long gone
Even the better ones yet to come
Broke and Drunk

Still I hold a hope I'll see my name in the marquee
And I'll get paid to play my song on late night TV
And we'll move from this apartment to the turrett down the street
We'll throw a huge party

To the dreams that finally have come to pass
The memories of harder days long gone
To how far we have come
From broke and drunk
