Albert Collins – When The Welfare Turns Its Back On You lyrics

Now what you gonna do, when the welfare turn it's back on you?
Now what you gonna do-hoo-hoo-hoo, when the welfare turn it's back on you
Now, you be standin' there stranded, there's ain't a thing that you can do

Now you look all through your house, yes, you can't, find a piece of bread
Now you look all through your hou-hou-house, yeah, you can't find a piece of bread
Sometime you begin to wonder, if you be better off, better off, dead

You go down to the welfare
Give 'em one, two report
Something they sellin' you
Will surely get your goat

If you tell 'em you sick
You better have a bad cough
'Cause if you don't
They be ready to throw you off

What you gonna do, when the welfare turns it's back on you?
You be standin' there stranded,
There ain't a thing, there ain't a thing you
There ain't a thing-hing-hing-hing-hing,
That you can do
