The Lyrics

Filthy Poor is what folks call me,
Filthy Poor, not filthy rich
Need no speech of motivation
I'm contented with my niche
Credit score is minus fifty,
All the bills I get I pitch
Filthy Poor is what they call me
Filthy Poor, not filthy rich..

Home's a shack down in the ghetto,
Broken windows, broken door
Can't afford a bed to sleep on,
So, I just fluff up the floor..
There's a dog and cat that stray in
When I need love, hunt a bitch
Filthy Poor is what they call me,
Filthy Poor, not filthy rich..

Don't need fancy invitations
To elite white tie affairs
Pull my pants on every morning,
And breathe air the same as theirs
I don't envy Warren Buffett
Got no urge, with him, to switch
Filthy Poor is what they call me,
Filthy Poor, not filthy rich

Filthy Poor is what they call me
Filthy Poor, not filthy rich..

What Alvin said. (Must say, tho' that my favorite cover, by far, is The Seekers' mid-60s hit. Any cover without that ringing 12-string guitar is just missing something.) :-)
