I ain't broke but I'm badly bent
I had a little money but that's all been spent
When I look back I wonder where it went
It ain't no joke I ain't broke but I'm badly bent

I went to see a so-called friends
To get a little help for the tie I was in
I said I'll pay you back someday when my rich uncle passes away
But he looked at me kinda foolishly and then he had these words to say

He said I ain't broke but I'm badly bent...

Then I called my true love on the phone
The one I spent my last dollar on
I said I'll pay you back someday when my rich uncle passes away
But she said I'm through with the likes of you
And she had a quite few more words to say

She said I ain't broke but I'm badly bent...
It ain't no joke I ain't broke but I'm badly bent
