The Lyrics

About being a hobo. And PLEASE click on my name and revciew my unreviewed parodies, OK? :)
I'm tired of being a guy with a home, you see
Feeling like a bum, I wanna panhandle
I want you to give your money to me
I'll eat from a bag and wear real worn-out shoes
(Caught my the police force, just caught by the police force)
Every second I dance I do not mind I rip my pants
(Caught by the men in blue, just caught by the men in blue)

I've become a bum
I can't feel my toes
I live in a box, made out of cardboard
I'm becoming drunk, all I want to do
Is beg for money, and make more than you

Can't you see that I'm dancing for coins?
Playing my bagpipes, hoping for a profit
'Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart, now that I'm a hobo
(Bathroom's a cardboard box, my bathroom's a cardboard box)
Every dime that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in my underwear, just caught in my underwear)
An' every booze-bootle I waste is more than I can take

[Chorus: Repeat]

And I know
I intentionally failed myself, too
But I know
You'd be just like me
If you didn't want a job

[Chorus: Repeat]

Become a bum
I hold out a can
I'm tired of begging for some really small change (x2)
