"Poor Gutter Guy"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This is an old standard that I learned from the movie "Thoroughly Modern Millie" (Which I also parodied the title song of). I know it's short, but that's all the words of the original.
Poor gutter guy
'Neath the Sears box sleeping
Poor gutter guy
For he sunk so low
His bladder passes the beer
Yes, once he had a career
He asks for change
And can act real strange
And often mutters
I'm sure he'll be back by and by
But if he don't come back
Well, just say "Hi"
New gutter guy

The OS inspires parodies about the less fortunate - smelly cats and gutter guys.
