old census taker bans my name from this town’s population Misfit
ain’t to the word I’d use to fit my situation My
predicaments known to every bum for miles around It’s
my misfortune to be fortunate bummin’ and in a one bum town Since

I cannot afford a cup I’ve been sticking out my hand You
should see that things I get safety pins and rubber bands It’s
so embarrassing ‘cause my homemade sunglasses keep falling down Somebody
up there has got it in for me bummin’ in a one bum town We’ll

Sheriff Brown has passed a law that prohibits all givin’ But
one stop sign gives tourists time to help me make a livin’ Ballpoint
pens have forced me to close my pencil business down The
side cops take turns walking up and down the sides Bummin’
in a one bum town
