The Hunger Hop
ESL - July, 2007
G C Am
Rich folks eat in fancy restaurants and such,
But I just had to take my belt in yet another notch.
No I ain't beggin' mister, I'll work until I drop,
I'm gonna sing and dance for you and I don't aim to stop.
I'm only asking for a minute of your time,
And maybe if you like my song you could spare me a dime,
Don't worry if you've missed a verse, I'll take it from the top
Please stick around and watch me as I do that hunger hop.
Or you could get me a hamburger, or a hot dog on a bun,
Perhaps a piece of chicken, I won't mind either one.
The truth is, after all is done, and after all is said,
I could be really happy, with a tiny crust of bread.
