Lyrics Poor Side of Town

How can you tell me how much you miss me?
When the last time I saw you you wouldn't even kiss me
That rich guy you've been seein' must have put you down
So welcome back baby to the poor side of town
To him you were nothin' but a little play thing
Not much more than an overnight fling
To me you were the greatest thing this boy had ever found
And girl it's hard to find nice things on the poor side of town
I can't blame you for tryin'
I'm tryin' to make it too
I've got one little hang up baby
I just can't make it without you
So tell me are you gonna stay now?
Will you stand by me girl all the way now
With you by my side they can't keep us down
Together we can make it baby from the poor side of town
Oh with you by my side this world can't keep us down
Together we can make it baby from the poor side of town
