The Lyrics

can't stand throwin' up on my shoes
real loose, just sittin' and a-drownin' my blues
i'm such a pest...i will beg and accuse
won't ya gimme change, here, for some cheap booze

gimme...gimme, baby
gimme...gimme, baby
gimme...gimme, baby
won't ya gimme change, here, for some cheap booze

feel like chuggin'
baby, won't you help me, please
i don't like beggin'
but i can't drink for free

my head begins a-knockin'
and my vision's gone black
i need some hootchie-kootchie
in a brown paper sack
don't drink the best
its just crap that i choose
won't ya gimme change, here, for some cheap booze

gimme...gimme, baby
gimme...gimme, baby
gimme...gimme, baby
won't ya gimme change, here, for some cheap booze

my throat could use some soothin'
baby, i ain't lyin'
my flask's got nothin' in it
can you spare a dime ?
this ain't no jest
i got no funds to use
won't you gimme change, here, for some cheap booze
