World Gone Crazy

アーティストThe Doobie Brothers
作詞Tom Johnston
作曲Tom Johnston
Workin' real hard in the heart of the city
Noonday sun feelin' hot and sweaty
Tryin' to make my pay tryin' to make my monthly rent
Workin' real hard for the U.S. dollar
Livin' real poor gonna make me holler
I don't wanna live in the street like some folks do

I was raised up on the corner in front of a grocery store
Shinin' shoes with the daily news for 2 bits on the floor
But given a chance I'd go back to the days of a simpler time
Cause this old world's gone crazy and I'm about to lose my mind

Workin' real hard in the heart of the city
Noonday sun feelin' hot and sweaty
Tryin' to make my pay tryin' to make my monthly rent
Workin' real hard for the U.S. dollar
Livin' real poor gonna make me holler
I don't wanna live in the street like some folks do

My brother drives delivery right down on Dauphin Street
Had a little house by the railroad track kinda small but it was neat
The police came and got him for robbin' a liquor store
And even though he didn't do it
They got what they came for

Workin' real hard in the heart of the city
Noonday sun feelin' hot and sweaty
Tryin' to make my pay, tryin' to make my monthly rent
Workin' real hard for the U.S. dollar
Livin' real poor gonna make me holler
I don't wanna live in the street like some folks do

It's a poor man but life is bittersweet
Doesn't wanna lose that good thing that he's got
But the same old government who pays you every week
Will come and take your home away and put you in the street

Workin' real hard in the heart of the city
Noonday sun feelin' hot and sweaty
Tryin' to make my pay, tryin' to make my monthly rent
Workin' real hard for the U.S. dollar
Livin' real poor gonna make me holler
I don't wanna live in the street like some folks do
