I was nothin' but a city boy
I've been blowin' my horn
But there ain't nobody wants to know
I've been sleepin' on the sidewalk
I may get hungry

And the biggest grin I ever seen
Right along the dotted line
Sure you don't mean me?
I've been sleepin' on the sidewalk
I may get hungry

They said 'blow your trumpet into here'
And soon we had the record of the year
I was a legend all through the land
Nothin' was a missin'
You'd have thought I was a happy man
And I was sleepin' like a princess
I don't get hungry
(Have to have some fun...)
Now they tell me that I ain't so fashionable
So I told 'em where to stick the fancy label

I'm back on the game
I'm sleepin' on the sidewalk
I sure get hungry and
