Ever since I can remember I've been broke

Aint no joke

Pockets full of - nope, nada

Old man used to drive a Lada

I tried hard to

Supplement my lack of pocket money doing jobs

It's funny, I used to help my mother stitching cushions for ole Lizzy Bradley

Gardening and what not

I dug more holes than moles

Proles like me got paper rounds

Later we got people's rounds

15 I worked in the Old Vaults

Down Lower Bangor

Love that town

All my jobs were menial

I rocked that own brand cereal

Factories through administration

I got sacked in each location

I learnt from Bruce Lee: Don't think, feel

Went to America and got a record deal

Came back home all full of hope -

I told my girl, "we wont' be broke"

I quote:

We won’t be broke forever baby

(We won’t be broke, we won’t be broke)

We won’t be broke forever baby

(We won’t be broke, we won’t be broke)

Sometimes you feel like crying

But Lord only knows were trying

No one's lovin you like I am

Oh eh oh eh oh!

We won’t be broke forever baby

(We won’t be broke, we won’t be broke)

I was trying to make pasta

Gas just run out

I was trying to have a shower

Electric run out

So don’t you run out, or get a gun out

I swear down babe sun's gonna come out

Some dope film's gonna use this song

Everybody's gonna love it and they'll all sing along

And they all gon' drop like The Martian Hop

Badda oom badda badda

Badda oom bop bop

So we'll get get paid, and we'll get get go

On our w w way, round the w w world

You're my get go girl - you the greatest

None more dope you can't debate this

So we'll go shops and we'll get you shoes

There's some gold flip flips we can get you too

We can share a milkshake, ride the bus

As long as we've got us

My baby trust

And when we're old

We'll live in luxury

I a solid gold house

Beside the sea somewhere

And we'll have nothing to worry about

Apart from cancer scares

But then again

We might just have fixed all that crap!

We won’t, we won’t, we won’t be broke!

Oh oh oh ohhhhhhhh!
