poor side of town lyrics – eels

do-doo-doo-wah, shoo-be-doo-be
do-doo-doo-wah, shoo-be-doo-be

how can you tell me how much you miss me
when the last time i saw you, you wouldn’t even kiss me
that rich guy you’ve been seein’ must have put you down
so welcome back, baby, to the poor side of town

to him you were nothin’ but a little plaything
not much more than an overnight fling
to me you were the greatest thing this boy had ever found
and girl, it’s hard to find nice things on the poor side of town

i can’t blame you for tryin’
i’m tryin’ to make it too
i’ve got one little hang up, baby
i just can’t make it without you

so tell me, are you gonna stay now?
will you stand by me, girl, all the way now?
with you by my side, they can’t keep us down
together we can make it, baby, from the poor side of town

so tell me how much you love me?
come near to me and say you need me now
oh, with you by my side this world can’t keep us down
together we can make it, baby, from the poor side of town

do-doo-doo-wah, shoo-be-doo-be
do-doo-doo-wah, shoo-be-doo-be
do-doo-doo-wah, shoo-be-doo-be
