Poor Side Of Town Lyrics

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 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 play-thing
Not much more than an overnight fling.
To me you were the greatest thing this boy had ever found
And 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 got one little hangup baby
I just can't make it without you.
So tell me, are you gonna stay now?
Will you stand by me, 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.
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.
