Carla Bruni – Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out lyrics

Once I lived the life
Of a millionaire
Spent all my money
I just did not care
Took all my friends out
For a good time
Bought bootleg whiskey
Champagne and wine

Then I began
To fall so low
Lost all
My good friends
I did not have
Nowhere to go
I get my hands
On a dollar again
I'm gonna hang on
To it
Till that eagle grins

'Cause no, no
Nobody knows you
When you're down
And out
In your pocket
Not one penny
And as for friends
You don't have any

When you finally
Get back up
On your feet again
Everybody wants
To be your old
Long-lost friend
Said
It's mighty strange
Without a doubt
Nobody knows you
When you're down
And out

When you finally
Get back upon
Your feet again
Everybody wants to be
Your good old
Long-lost friend
Said
It's mighty strange
Nobody knows you
Nobody knows you
Nobody knows you
When you're down
And out
