Lyrics Israelites

Get up in the morning slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed poor me, Israelites, ah ah ah
Get up in the morning slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed poor me, Israelites
My wife and my kids they packed up and leave me
Darling, she said
I was yours to be seen poor me, Israelites
Shirt them a-tear up trousers are gone
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde poor me, Israelites
After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm you sound your alarm
Poor oh oh oh oh me
Israelites hee, hey
I said I get up in the morning slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed a-poor me, Israelites, ah
I said my wife and my kids they are packed up and leave me
Darling, she said
I was yours to be seen a-poor me, Israelites, ah
Look me shirts them a-tear up trousers are gone
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde poor a-poor me, Israelites, ah
After a storm there must be a calm if they catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm poor me, Israelites, hee hee hee
A-poor, a-poor, a-poor, a-poor me, Israelites, ah
I wondering a working to a hard a-poor, a-poor, a-poor me, Israelites look down on-a moon sir
A-poor, a-poor me, Israelites, ah
