Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out

March 2012

Once I led the life of a millionaire
Spendin’ all my money I didn’t care
Takin’ my friends out for a mighty good time,
Bootleg, whiskey, champagne and wine.

Then I began to fall so low
Lost all my good friends and nowhere to go
If I ever get my hand on a dollar again
Gonna hang on to it ‘till the eagle grins.

Cos nobody knows you, when you’re down and out
In my pocket not one penny
And my friends I haven’t any
But If I ever get myself back on my feet again
Everybody wants to be my long lost friend
It’s mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you down and out
I mean when you down and out
Cos nobody knows you, when you’re down and out
In my pocket not one penny
And my friends I haven’t any
But If I ever get myself back on my feet again
Everybody wants to be my long lost friend
It’s mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you down and out
I mean when you down and out
When you’re down and out
Ooh when you’re down and, when you’re down and out.
