I'm not crazy like my brother
But it's the way I choose
I don't hang around with a six pence
When I got everything to lose

Would you bring me my money
And take from me all that I was worth
Cause I wasn't worth nothing
And I wasn't yours

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay a while
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Sold out men from across the way
He thought he heard what he heard you say
Hey now man your watch it shines
For the bid of a moment yeilds 40 times

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay while

Don't you be a passerby
Oh don't won't you sit down
And stay a while...
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Woman and little child
Don't you be a passerby
I'm not crazy like my brother
But it's the way I choose
I don't hang around with a six pence
When I got everything to lose

Would you bring me my money
And take from me all that I was worth
Cause I wasn't worth nothing
And I wasn't yours

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay a while
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Sold out men from across the way
He thought he heard what he heard you say
Hey now man your watch it shines
For the bid of a moment yeilds 40 times

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay while

Don't you be a passerby
Oh don't won't you sit down
And stay a while...
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Woman and little child
Don't you be a passerby
I'm not crazy like my brother
But it's the way I choose
I don't hang around with a six pence
When I got everything to lose

Would you bring me my money
And take from me all that I was worth
Cause I wasn't worth nothing
And I wasn't yours

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay a while
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Sold out men from across the way
He thought he heard what he heard you say
Hey now man your watch it shines
For the bid of a moment yeilds 40 times

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay while

Don't you be a passerby
Oh don't won't you sit down
And stay a while...
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Woman and little child
Don't you be a passerby
I'm not crazy like my brother
But it's the way I choose
I don't hang around with a six pence
When I got everything to lose

Would you bring me my money
And take from me all that I was worth
Cause I wasn't worth nothing
And I wasn't yours

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay a while
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Sold out men from across the way
He thought he heard what he heard you say
Hey now man your watch it shines
For the bid of a moment yeilds 40 times

Oh don't you be a passerby
Oh won't you sit down
And stay while

Don't you be a passerby
Oh don't won't you sit down
And stay a while...
Cause it's been too long since you been around

Woman and little child
Don't you be a passerby
