I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
Well I ain't got nothing but the shirt on my back and an old two button suit
I walked out on my job about a week ago and I'm sleepin' in a telephone booth
But I'm a gonna be the richest guy around the day you say you're mine
I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
When I first saw you babe you nearly made me wreck my old 49 Cadillac
I knew at a glance that it was you for me and I had to have your love by heck
I'm gonna follow you baby wherever you go I got nothing to lose but my time
I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
[ ac.guitar ]
Well you made me the top dog on your hill and I was overjoyed
But it didn't take long till the thrill was gone I joined the ranks of the unemployd
Now I'm right back where that I started from but that ain't gonna change my mind
I got the hungrys for your love and I'm waitin' in your welfare line
Yes I'm waitin' in your welfare line
