Hallelujah, I'm a Bum

Joe Hill
Language: English



»Oh, why don't you work
Like other men do?«
How can I work when there's
No work to do?

Hallelujah, I'm a bum,
Hallelujah, bum again.
Hallelujah, give us a handout
To revive us again.

A lady came out when I
Knocked on the door.
»You'll get nothing here
'Cause I've seen you before.«

Hallelujah, I'm a bum,
Hallelujah, bum again.
Hallelujah, give us a handout
To revive us again.

»Oh, why don't you pray
For your daily bread?«
If that's all I did,
I'd be mighty soon dead.

Hallelujah, I'm a bum,
Hallelujah, bum again.
Hallelujah, give us a handout
To revive us again.

»Oh, why don't you save
All the money you earn?«
If I didn't eat, I'd have
Money to burn.

Hallelujah, I'm a bum,
Hallelujah, bum again.
Hallelujah, give us a handout
To revive us again.
