No Dough (The No Money Blues)

 

They’ve pulled the rug out from under my shoes,

I feel so hopeless and I’ve got the blues.

I don’t know how I’m going to pay the rent,

all of our saved up money it all has been spent.

I feel so low ‘cause I’ve got no dough.

 

The boss said, “boy, we don’t need you today”,

They cut my hours and the same with my pay.

I don’t know how I’m going to pay the rent,

All of our saved up money it all has been spent.

I feel so low ‘cause I’ve got no dough.

 

I need a job and I need it today,

If I don’t get one I’ll go down to my grave.

I don’t know how I’m going to pay the rent,

All of our saved up money it all has been spent.

I feel so low ‘cause I’ve got no dough.
