Skinny, go on home. Run like everything.
When I am broke and out of dough
To shows and balls I cannot go,
Life just seems like—I don't know what—
I'd like to die upon the spot;
For all the world holds nought but woe,
Each maiden seems to have a beau,
My pockets all are hanging low,
When I am broke.
My erstwhile friends just say "Hello"
And pass me up, or say I'm slow.
It makes me feel so blamed forlorn
To wake up every bloomin' morn
And think what I must undergo,
Because I'm broke.
I am jugged for to-day
And I'm sure out of luck—
I am sorry to say
I am jugged for to-day;
But I'm game as a duck
If I do have to pay.
I am jugged for to-day
And I'M sure out of luck.
