Song Description

comedy song in a regge style about being on hard times

Lyrics

aint got no job, people dont get me
is it cause i not use words eloquently
the bank mans taking everything i own
now i live on a park bench
no underpants or confidence
and my nuts are freezin cold

but maybe sometimes you get just what you need
and every dreamer knows
sometimes it takes a loser
to be the hero

my parents were so broke they worked for hobos
even my sunday shoes had cardboard soles
santa never to our house on christmas eve
asked for a bike one year
and got a slice of beef
it wasnt even all for me

but maybe sometimes you get just what you need
as several movies clearly show
sometimes it takes a loser
to be the hero

someday i'm gonna beat the odd's
see my name in lights
no more smellin like a wet dog
or selling my body to the night

but maybe sometimes you get just what you need
as every washed up burn out hopes
sometimes it takes a loser
to be the hero
