Listen here, babe
I'm broke an I'm hungry, too
Listen here, babe
I'm broke an I'm hungry, too
And I would like to know, babe
Can I go home wit' you?

My woman have quit me
An she did not say one word
My woman have quit me
She did not say one word
It was nothin' that I did
Just something my baby heard

It was so hard, babe
You left me for somebody else
It was so hard, babe
You left me for somebody else
But I've come to get you
I love you for myself

Listen here, people
Can't you do something for me?
Listen here, people
Can't you do something for me?
Lord, my baby's gone
And no peace can I see

I'm a real good man
Good as I can be
I'm a real good man
Just as good as I can be
Lord, I don't see why
You won't give me three, full meals.

~

    Broke and hungry, means desperation! It means that you can't drive because you don't have gasoline. It means that you are down to the last 3 meals in your frig. It means that you are afraid.
