I CAN'T GO TO THE POOR HOUSE Dick Robertson - 1932 I haven't got a single cent and I am all alone This world is treating me so cold and I'm without a home To ev'rybody that I meet, I tell them my sad case They say to me, "Why don't you go to the poor house, that's your place" But I can't go to the poor house, that ain't no place for me I can't go to the poor house, although the lodging's free It ain't that I've got too much pride, I'm humble as a pup But I can't go to the poor house, 'cause the beds are all filled up I can't go to the poor house, way over on the hill I can't go to the poor house, that used to be a mill I asked them why I can't get in, they told me, I declare Oh, I can't go to the poor house, all the millionaires are there I can't go to the poor house, although I know I should I can't go to the poor house, although I wish I could I'd go there in my limousine, I've got one, too, that's class But I can't go to the poor house because I can't buy gas I can't go to the poor house, there ain't no use to try I can't go to the poor house, I've got six reasons why There's Freddy, Mary, Jim, and Joe, there's Baby and the wife Say, I can't go to the poor house, I brought it on myself (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2014)
