I can hound you if I need to.
Sip your brandy from a crystal shoe.
In the corner. In the corner.
While the others climb reaching dizzy heights.
The world's in front of me in black and white.
I'm on the bottom line. I'm on the bottom line.
I'd have a cardiac if I had such luck.
Lucky losers - lucky losers landing on skid row. Landing on skid row.
While the Diamond Jims and the Kings road pimps
breathe heavy in their brand new clothes.
I'm on the bottom line. I'm on the bottom line.

And I gotta get a meal ticket. To survive you need a meal ticket.
To stay alive you need a meal ticket.
Feel no pain (no pain), no regret (no regret).
When the line's been signed you're someone else.
Do yourself a favor, the meal ticket does the rest.

Shake a hand if you have to. Trust in us and we will love you anyway, anyway.
Don't leave us stranded in the jungle with fifty percent that's hard to handle.
Ain't that so? Ain't that so?
