    Poor Boy

    [Verse 1: Jamie McDell]
    I went to school with the sharpest of the knives
    I fooled around with the richest of the wives
    I broke some records runnin' circles on a track
    I broke my nose, then my brother broke it right back

    [Chorus: Jamie McDell & Tom Busby, Jamie McDell]
    Said I got no time to be a poor boy
    Mornin' job at the freezin' works
    Midnight runnin' with the sure boys
    Daytime workin' toward a junior clerk
    And
    I'm gonna find a way to make it work
    I watched my father and the way he hurt
    Said I got no time to be a poor boy

    [Verse 2: Jamie McDell]
    I built an office with the highest of the bar
    Redid the kitchen, put a lap pool in the yard
    Me and your mother used to mingle with the stars
    Out on the weekend singin' "Taxi" on guitar

    [Chorus: Jamie McDell & Tom Busby, Jamie McDell]
    Said I got no time to be a poor boy
    Bloody Mary cure them Moet eyes
    Midnight dinin' with the sure boys
    Someday sailin' to a long white isle
    And I'm gonna find a way to make it work
    I watched my father and the way it hurt
    Said there ain't no pride in being poor, boy

    [Bridge: Jamie McDell]
    I went to school with the sharpest of the knives
    But I broke some rules and I truly paid the price
    Over the years, over many more mistakes
    I watched the assets and the value sail away
    So I keep on workin' 'til my body makes me stop
    You and your sister are the only gold we've got
    Don't take my lesson, you don't need it, you are wise
    But don't be obsessin' over anythin' but real life

    [Chorus: Jamie McDell & Tom Busby]
    Said I got time to be a poor boy
    See my daughters on the stage last night
    I'm not dyin' with the sure boys
    Monday drivin' through the countryside
    And I'm gonna find a way to make it work
    I put my family and the sunrise first
    Said if I got time, I ain't a poor boy

    [Outro: Jamie McDell & Tom Busby, Jamie McDell]
    If I got time, I ain't a poor boy
    If I got time, I ain't a poor boy
