Jack Jersey - Papa Was A Poor Man lyrics


Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

He ain't got no money, he ain't got a job
The mama once felt so happy
His papa was the best lookin' man who came around

His day came along, sang a little song
He made the mama felt so happy
He got a little song that papa gonna cradle downtown

Ain't talkin' 'bout papa
He was the poor richest man in town
I never saw a man who was so fine, but papa
He was the only friend of mine

Hey, papa
He was the poor richest man in town
A man who lost money on a Saturdaynight
For mama, the Sunday was alright

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

He ain't got a house, he ain't got a car
The mama once felt so happy
His papa was the only man who tried so hard

A man, he had the hood, am I always understood
His smudge once felt so happy
But papa said: "Tomorrow's another time"

Ain't talkin' 'bout papa
He was the poor richest man in town
I never saw a man who was so fine, but papa
He was the only friend of mine

Hey, papa
He was the poor richest man in town
A man who lost money on a Saturdaynight
For mama, the Sunday was alright

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

Ain't talkin' 'bout papa
He was the poor richest man in town
I never saw a man who was so fine, but papa
He was the only friend of mine

Hey, papa
He was the poor richest man in town
A man who lost money on a Saturdaynight
For mama, the Sunday was alright

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor, poor, poor, poor
Poor, poor, poor man
