about

Recorded in 2009.

lyrics

Well I used to hang around on the outskirts of my town
With all the girls on down the workin' line
And I was such a poor boy I couldn't make a dime
But I was rich on lovin' all the time

And then I met this girl with pretty blonde hair
And a pair of big blue eyes
All-American girl, you know the type
I asked her to the dance hall
she said "yes, if you've got the ride"
and I said "no, but we can walk there if you like"

Because you see, I'm rich on lovin'
I don't make enough for nothin'
and if lovin' you means somethin'
Then I guess we'll be alright
Well I am such a poor boy
And I never made a dime
but I was rich on lovin' all the time

Well I hung out with the boys oh yes
And we made all kinds of noise
Love was something much too true to try
Jimmy was rich on stealin'
And Johnny was rich on dealin'
But I was rich on lovin' all the time

Oh and I'd haggle the handsome harlots
'Til my hunger had been haught
And I'd stagger round and straddle those I bought
And then one of them wouldn't take the cuffs off
I knew I'd been caught
But I did not show my anger or distraught

Because you see I'm rich on lovin'
Got no money to be bluffin'
Stuff me away in a jail cell
I'll bust out at the first light
Well I might be a poor boy
But I don't take part in crime
And I'll keep buying vadges
Until every one is mine

Oh yes you see I'm rich on lovin'
I don't make enough for nothin'
and if lovin' you means somethin'
Then I guess we'll be alright
Well I am such a poor boy
And I never made a dime
but I'll be rich on lovin' all the time

Oh yes you see I'm rich on lovin'
I don't make enough for nothin'
and if lovin' you means somethin'
Then I guess we'll be alright
Well I am such a poor boy
And I never made a dime
but I'll be rich on lovin' you tonight
Yes I'll be rich on lovin' you tonight
Yes I'll be rich on lovin' you tonight
