Now, what you gonna do
When the welfare turn it's back on you?
Now what you gonna do
When the welfare turn it's back on you?

Now, you be standin' there stranded
There's ain't a thing that you can do

Now you look all through your house
Yes, you can't find a piece of bread
Now you look all through your house
Yeah, you can't find a piece of bread

Sometime you begin to wonder
If you be better off, better off dead

You go down to the welfare
Give 'em one, two report
Something they sellin' you
Will surely get your goat

If you tell 'em you sick
You better have a bad cough
'Cause if you don't
They be ready to throw you off

What you gonna do
When the welfare turns it's back on you?
You be standin' out stranded
There ain't a thing, there ain't a thing you

There ain't a thing
That you can do

Songwriters
SONNY THOMPSON, LUCIOUS PORTER WEAVER
