The work is hard and the hours are long
The money ain't much but we get along
We're rich in things can give
That can't be bought with a dollar bill

So, come on down
Have a look around
Rich folks livin' in a poor folks town
We got no money but we're rich in love
That's one thing that we've got a-plenty of
So come on down have a look around
At rich folks livin' in a poor folks town

We got no carpets on the floor
We've got wall to wall love
Who could ask for more
We got no big fine things to show
Just a place to watch our children grow

We got no big fine fancy car to drive
And no fancy clothes to keep in style
What we've got we're payin' on
But it's mostly love that we're livin' on

So, come on down
Have a look around
Rich folks livin' in a poor folks town
We got no money but we're rich in love
That's one thing that we've got a-plenty of
So come on down have a look around
At rich folks livin' in a poor folks town

We've got a little simple church nearby
And the promise of a mansion in the sky
A heart of gold a million dollar smile
And a one way ticket to paradise

So, come on down
Have a look around
Rich folks livin' in a poor folks town
We got no money but we're rich in love
That's one thing that we've got a-plenty of
So come on down have a look around
At rich folks livin' in a poor folks town

So, come on down
Have a look around
Rich folks livin' in a poor folks town
We got no money but we're rich in love
That's one thing that we've got a-plenty of
So come on down have a look around
At rich folks livin' in a poor folks town
