My family is poor,
My man is poor,
I am poor,
We are sticking together even if we’re poor,
There’s love even if we’re poor.
We don’t always have enough money to spend,
There are bills to pay,
We get frustrated because we don’t have enough to spend,
We wish there wasn’t so much to pay,
All we want is enough money left over to spend.
We don’t abandon each other while we struggle with money,
We get frustrated with each other because of money,
Why is it so hard to make money?
Sometimes we want to win the lottery so we won’t struggle so much with money,
Still we do our best to figure out how to make money.
Deep down there’s hope that one day we’ll be free of money problems,
It’s that hope that keeps us going,
We need to believe we’ll one day be free of money problems,
Without that belief we might not want to keep going,
Yes, we all need to believe we’ll be free of money problems.
