Here I am at home (hrum, hrum hrum)

I was afraid, to get out of the car
So I just sat there, I just sat there
How was I gonna tell them?
That I lost my job
Gotta go in there, gotta go in there
So we gathered 'round the table
Told them the news
And the look of desperation
Nearly broke me in two

Son, I know you wanted
Them running shoes
Gonna have to wait, they going have to wait
Darling, I know you wanted
That dress in the window
We gonna get it,
But it won't be now

Then my little girl looked at me,
With those big round eyes
And the words she told me,
almost made me cry!

(Chorus)

We don't need it,
We can do without it,
We going to make it
No doubt about it
We're going stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you

My son said;
Daddy, I got sixteen books
Why don't you take it, I want you to take it
The next door neighbor
Asked me to rake the leaves
And I'm gonna do it, I'm sure gonna do it
'Cause I wanna help you out
Anyway I can
It's about time I learn, just to be a man

My wife said;
Darling, we got so much stuff
Just sitting around here, just sitting around
Like grandmom's china, and the sterling silverware
Just sitting around here, just gathering dust
Ever since she past away
We ain't used it yet
So let's put it out in the front yard
And see what we can get

(Chorus)

And we don't need it
We can do without it,
We gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're going stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you

Days and weeks,
and months went by
The big boss called,
In a lickup town (?)
Got my check
And brought it home
Yeah, it's been tough
But we've been blessed
Let's get them shoes
And that brand new dress!

(Chorus)

We don't need it
We can do without it,
We gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're going stick together
Make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you (you)

We don't need it
We can do without it,
We gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're going stick together
And make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you (loving you)

We can do without it
We gonna make it
No doubt about it
We're going stick together (begin fading)
And make it better
We don't need it
All we need is you

(Fade chorus)
