Lyrics

I remember a time when everything was cheap
And now prices nearly put a man to sleep
When I get my grocery bill
I feel like goin’ out and making a will
Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live
Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live

Well the doctor comes around with his face all bright
And he says “Boy, in a little while you’re gonna be all right”
All you get is a humbug pill
A dose of dope and a great big bill
Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live
Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live

The preachers today preach for gold and not for souls
That’s what keeps us poor folk down in a great big hole
We can hardly catch our breath
We’re taxed, we’re schooled, and we’re preached half to death
Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live
Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live
How can a poor man stand such times and live
