nobody knows you when you’re down and out lyrics – katie melua

once i lived the life of a millionaire,
spending all my money, i didn´t care.
taking my friends out for a magic time,
bought whiskey, champagne and wine.

then i began to fall so low,
lost all my good friends, i didn´t know where to go.
if i get my hands on a dollar again,
i’m gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins.

cause no, no, n*body knows you
when you’re down and out.
in my pocket, not one penny,
and my friends, i haven´t any.

when i finally get back up on my feet again,
everybody wanna be my long-lost friend.
it’s mighty strange, without a doubt,
n*body knows you when you’re down and out.
n*body… when you´re down and out.

n*body knows you
when you´re down and out.
in my pocket, not one penny,
and my friends, i haven´t any.

when i get myself back on my feet again,
everybody wanna be my long-lost friend.
it’s mighty strange, without a doubt,
n*body knows you when you’re down and out.

…when you’re down and out.
…when you’re down and out.
