Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spendin' my money, no, I didn't care
Takin' my friends all out for a mighty good time
Buyin' high priced liquor, champagne and wine

Oh, then I fell so low
Didn't have a friend nor a place to go
If I ever get my hands on another dollar again
I'm a hold on to it until the eagle grins

Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Down and out, ooh

Soon as I got back up on my feet again
Everybody wants to be my old long lost friend
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody wants you when you're down and out

Said, nobody wants you when you're down and out
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Down and out, ooh

Nobody wants you, yeah, aah yeah, oh yeah
Nobody wants you, nobody wants you

Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Nobody wants you when you're down and out

Nobody wants you, yeah, yeah
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Oh, nobody wants you
