  • Every absent-minded day
    I let myself carried away
    Then you get five dollars, baby blues, five dollars baby

    Kneeling down for all they cared
    You let them pay and went ahead
    It is still five dollars, baby blues, five dollars baby
    Five dollars, baby blues, five dollars baby

    You're eager and unashamed
    I grieve by dying every night, baby
    Prove them wrong when you get five dollars
    You're eager and unashamed
    I don't think the race is over, baby
    Prove them wrong when you get five dollars

    Five dollars, baby blues, five dollars baby

    Some of us just had to fight
    For even being looked at right
    Then you get five dollars, baby blues, five dollars baby

    Pockets full and dried eyes
    It turns me on because it's timed
    Now throw me five dollars baby blues, five dollars baby
    Throw me five dollars baby blues, five dollars baby
    Throw me five dollars baby blues, five dollars baby

    You're eager and unashamed
    I grieve by dying every night, baby
    Prove them wrong when you get five dollars

    You're eager and unashamed
    I don't think the race is over, baby
    Prove them wrong when you get five dollars

    Oh, you're eager and unashamed
    I grieve by dying every night, baby
    Prove them wrong when you get five dollars

    Oh, you're eager and unashamed
    And I don't think the race is over, baby
    Prove them wrong when you get five dollars Writer/s: Heloise Letissier
