Poorman

Lead Singer: Dave Gahan
Songwriter: Martin L. Gore


Hey, there's no news
Poor man still got the blues
He's walking 'round in worn out shoes
With nothing to lose

Hey, he's on the road
Pushing along his heavy load
Heading for no fixed abode
Shuffling slow

Corporations get the breaks
Keeping almost everything they make
Tell us just how long it's going to take
For it to trickle down
When will it trickle down

Hey, he's on the street
Laying in the snow and sleet
Begging for something to eat
And looking beat

Hey, passers-by
They don't care to catch his eye
Couldn't even tell you why
Or what's happening inside

Corporations get the breaks
Keeping almost everything they make
Tell us just how long it's going to take
For it to trickle down
When will it trickle down
