Fallen on hard times but it feels good to know,
Running on bad lines we'd better run as we go,

Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.
Looking for sunshine oh but it's black and it's cold
Giving us a hard time, my friends

Now they've re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink.
Soon there will be raised a holy stink.
Somebody wake me. I've been sleeping too long.
You can keep your promises. Shove 'em where they belong.

Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
handing us the same line again.
Fallen on hard times. We've fallen on hard times.
Fallen on hard times.
