Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out (Jimmy Cox) Once I lived the life of a millionaire Spending my money, with never a care Takin' all my friends out for a good time Drinkin' high-priced liquor, champagne and wine; Then I began to fall so low; Didn't have a friend, and noplace to go If I ever get my hands on a dollar again I'm gonna squeeze it, until the eagle grins, cause Nobody knows you when you're down and out. In your pocket, not one penny And your friends -- you find you haven't any. But as soon as you get back on your feet again Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend It's might strange, without a doubt Nobody knows you when you're down and out.
