Orleans – The Bum lyrics
Well, I pump a lotta gas
And I shot a lotta speed
Well, I bummed a lotta dimes
But they ain't nothin' that I need

'Cause I'm a bum
Well, I'm a bum, bum, bum, bum
Well, I'm a bum, bum, bum, bum
B-you-M, bum bum sha do be bowery

Well, I jump a lotta trains
And I seen a lotta towns
And well, I felt a lotta pain
And I've been known to fall right down

I'm a bum
Oh well, I'm a bum, bum, bum, bum
Well, I'm a bum, bum, bum, bum
B-you-M, bum bum sha do be bowery

Bum bum sha do be bowery

Well, I flunked out of school
And I shot a lotta pool
Well, some people they think I'm disgusting
But I know that I'm cool

Oh well, I'm a bum, bum, bum, bum
Well, I'm a bum, bum, bum, bum
B-you-M, bum bum sha do be bowery
