Lyrics

Broke Boogie

Got no money in our pocket, for a ticket at the station
Gonna use imagination take us anywhere we want to go…today
It don’t matter what the meteorologists say, what do they know anyway
Where ever we go it’ll be a sunny day, we got each other, that’s more than OK

So broke we cannot fix it and the only bank we know is at the river
Waiting for us to show, and make a little withdrawal
Flowing black just like ink, writing a song that just won’t sink
Glitter on the water, sparkle in your eye, best damned jewelry money can’t buy

Chorus: Only one way to look at it
When you’re wearing a dress that just don’t fit
Grab that slip, give it a little rip, past the knee, all the way to the hip
Then shake,…ain’t no way you can break
If you got flexibility, you’re right where you should be
Let your troubles know, it’s time to let it all go!

Got more lemons than they got at the store
Gonna corner the market and make some more lemonade
Squeeze em if you got ‘em
Sometimes it’s a downright deluge, it’s drink or drown and there a-ain’t no refuge
Other times fruit won’t let go, hangin over your mop, waitin’ to drop like hail

Chorus: Only one way to look at it
When you’re wearing a dress that just don’t fit
Grab that slip, give it a little rip, past the knee, all the way to the hip
Then shake,…ain’t no way you can break
If you got flexibility, you’re right where you should be
Let your troubles know, it’s time to let it all go!
