Fraternity – Welfare Boogie lyrics

Collection on Friday
Collection on Friday
The treasure keeper will drop me a line
We spend it by Monday
Tomorrow’s a Bon day
Can’t handle on the road if the weather is fine

Come and sing the welfare boogie
Come with me
Oh you know that it’ll fare me well

I’ll find me a lady
I’ll find me a lady
She’ll cheat in the bottle, and we’ll double our pay
We’ll save up our coupons
We’ll save up our coupons
Trade them into genuine Mexican (?)


Well my friend
You can plainly see
That the welfare boogie’s
Doin’ fine by me

I got me a problem
A real social problem
I can’t find employment for more than a week
You might think I’m sleazy
But you know it ain’t easy
Findin’ employment’s a job for a freak




But now I’ve been busted
The wrong guy, I’ve trusted
Well they put me in jail
And they’ve thrown out the key

Things could have been better
But there’s no weekly (?)
But my bread and my board
(?) for free
