Bobby Womack – Nobody Wants You When You're Down And Out lyrics

Hmmm, oh, yeah, hmm

Once I lived a life
Of a millionaire
Spending my money, honey
Oh, I didn't care

Taking my friends out
For a mighty good time
Drinking that good gin
Champagne and wine

Oh, just as soon as my money got low
Couldn't find my friends
And I had no place to go

But if I ever get my hands
On a dollar again
I believe I'll hold on
To that eager grin

'Cause I found out
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Down and out

Oh, yeah, mm hmm
Wait a minute

When in your pocket
There's not one penny
All men and good friend
I'm telling you to find out
If you haven't got any

Oh, just let you get up
On your feet again
Here they all come
Telling you, boy
That you're a long lost friend

Nobody wants you
When you're down and out
Let me tell you about it
Nobody wants you
Ah, nobody wants you now

Down and out
Down and out
Nobody wants you
Oh, hoo, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I don't mean to take up
Too much of your time
But I thought I'd drop this line

Nobody wants you
You see, nobody wants you
Nobody wants you
Nobody wants you now

You're down and out
I feel like I wanna groove now
Groove, groove on...
