SHE'D RATHER BE HOMELESS (Anne Dailey / Shel Silverstein) The Old Dogs (Lead vocal: Bobby Bare) - 1998 Marley's Ghost - 2000 It was our twenty-fifth anniversary And I was watching the Super Bowl When suddenly she started cursing me Hell, I almost dropped my remote control And she said "That's that!" and grabbed her hat And headed out into the snow And that was almost two long years ago.... Now see her shuffling down the street Combat boots on her dainty feet Pushing her belongings in a cart from the A&P See her bumming cigarettes, On the sidewalk where she sits Lord, she'd rather be homeless, than here at home with me She'd rather be sleeping in some doorway Than lolling in the lap of luxury And when the cold wind starts to blow Lord, it hurts me so to know She'd rather be homeless, than here at home with me She said all my friends were dumb And she called me "Yuppee scum!" She said she didn't give a damn 'bout my BMW or my AT&T She said to take these credit cards of mine, And stick'm where the sun don't shine Cause she'd rather be homeless, than here at home with me I see her sitting on her full length mink And as I walk by she winks Saying "Spare some change for a lady, a lady who's finally free" She don't want my bonds and stocks, Living in her cardboard box Oh, She'd rather be homeless, than here at home with me She'd rather eat soup down at the shelter Than at the Country Club sipping fine Chablis And as I throw her a dime Lord, it breaks this heart of mine to know She'd rather be homeless, than here at home with me Yes, she'd rather be homeless, than here at home with me
