MR.. DROPOUT
(Mel Tillis)
« © '66 Cedarwood Publishing »

Well I dropout the school when I was young
I thought living was just all fun
Then I met trouble in every turn
Now I'm one step away from being a bum
Lord I tried everything within my power
But I can't make but just a dollar an hour
You can't make a living on that kind of pay
And it hurts my pride to hear all say
Hey Mr. Dropout what's that you say
Sorry Mr. Dropout we can't use you today
Well I got married bout one year ago
A winter's coming on and the work gets slow
Mary had a baby that got blue eyes
When baby gets hungry baby cries
Lord I tried everything within my power
But I can't make but just a dollar an hour
You can't feed a family with that kind of pay
And it hurts my pride to hear all say
Hey Mr. Dropout what's that you say
Sorry Mr. Dropout we can't use you today
