Jimmy got nothing made himself a name
A smile and a quote from a vigilante movie
He said it made him crazy
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth
Sweet little baby on a big white doorstep
Just another hooker that the lucky can forget
It happens everyday
But she couldn't bare to see her living

I believe in the land of the free
(No one told me)
So with empty hands I pray
They still don't see me

Jump on the wagon or they'll leave you behind
Like to help you buddy, but I haven't got the time
But everybody started living hand to mouth

On a big white doorstep
Has to give a little for the dollars that we get
They say it's for the best
Maybe
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth
So she ran to the arms of America
And someone told me
That the gods believe in nothing
And tell myself
They just might see meJimmy got nothing made himself a name
A smile and a quote from a vigilante movie
He said it made him crazy
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth
Sweet little baby on a big white doorstep
Just another hooker that the lucky can forget
It happens everyday
But she couldn't bare to see her living

I believe in the land of the free
(No one told me)
So with empty hands I pray
They still don't see me

Jump on the wagon or they'll leave you behind
Like to help you buddy, but I haven't got the time
But everybody started living hand to mouth

On a big white doorstep
Has to give a little for the dollars that we get
They say it's for the best
Maybe
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth
So she ran to the arms of America
And someone told me
That the gods believe in nothing
And tell myself
They just might see meJimmy got nothing made himself a name
A smile and a quote from a vigilante movie
He said it made him crazy
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth
Sweet little baby on a big white doorstep
Just another hooker that the lucky can forget

But she couldn't bare to see her living

I believe in the land of the free

Jump on the wagon or they'll leave you behind

So she ran to the arms of America

That the gods believe in nothing
And tell myself
