Ain't No Streetcars When I'm Down

 Ain't no streetcars when I'm down.

 Bottle of beer will last me a year
 walking the streets with nothing to fear.
 Sky is cloudy, sidewalks clear.
 Ain't no streetcars when I'm down.

 Go to the store and lay on the floor;
 manager comes and calls me a bore.
 Not gonna shop that store no more.
 Ain't no streetcars when I'm down.

 Kitchen sink is raising a stink.
 Wash all the dishes they're back in a wink.
 I feel so bad that I can't even think.
 Ain't no streetcars when I'm down.

 Ain't seen my baby in almost a week.
 I'd walk to her house, but my shoe sprung a leak.
 If the train don't come soon I'm gonna freak.
 Ain't no streetcars when I'm down.
