I'm living on the other side of the track it's true
But like it or not I'm just as good as you
If I see you coming with your head held so high
Don't you worry 'bout me speaking I'll pass you right on by

This world is full of money but I haven't got a dime
Had a million heartaches, but I'm happy all the time
I can be like a tiger or as meek as a lamb
If you wanna get along with me you'll take me like I am

You can talk about your fancy friends and your millionaires
I may not have their money but I don't have their cares
You can live in a mansion set up on a golden throne
But all these things you have in life are gonna vanish when I'm gone

This world is full of money but I haven't got a dime
Had a million heartaches, but I'm happy all the time
I can be like a tiger or as meek as a lamb
If you wanna get along with me you'll take me like I am

This world is full of money but I haven't got a dime
Had a million heartaches, but I'm happy all the time
I can be like a tiger or as meek as a lamb
If you wanna get along with me you'll take me like I am
