Copperpenny – Sitting On A Poor Man's Throne lyrics

Well I ain't got nothin'
Nothin' I can call my own
My baby can't call me
I haven't got a telephone
Well I wouldn't bring the heat
Cause I'm livin' in a danger zone
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
Yah

Well I'd like to see my girl
Like take her to a jewelry store
But gazing through the window
Only makes a fellow hate life more
Oh the city's gotten busy
But I've never felt so all alone
Yah yah
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
Yah
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
Yahhh

Well I been thinking 'bout the future
I been thinking that there's nothin' to lose
If I only had a dollar
For every time I sang the blues
Oh but singing songs for nickels
Is the only life I've ever known
Yah
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's
Throne yah

Well I ain't got nothin'
Nothin' I can call my own
Uh-huh
My baby can't call me
I haven't got a telephone
I wouldn't bring the heat
Cause I'm livin' in a danger zone
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
Yah
And I'll never get arrested
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
Yahh
Sittin' on a poor man's throne
(Yah)
I been sittin' here all alone
(Yah)
Well I been sittin' on a poor man's throne
(Yah)
Well I been sittin' here much too long
(Yah)
I been thinking 'bout my future
I been thinking
(Yah)
That there's nothin' to loose yah
(Yah)
