  • Ain't got no job
    Ain't got no smoke
    Ain't got a car
    His life's a joke
    Living on the skids
    Thinks the world's just fine
    Forgot what he did
    Dancing on the breadline

    No one there to bind him
    Nothing to remind him
    Nowhere left to find him

    Ooh about to lose his lifeline
    He's dancing on the breadline

    Forgot who he is
    Forgot who he was
    Used to call the shots
    Now he can't connect the dots
    A mover and shaker
    Getting closer to his maker
    Lower than a hemline
    Dancing on the breadline

    No one there to bind him
    Nothing to remind him
    Nowhere left to find him

    Ooh, about to lose his lifeline
    He's looking for a headline
    Ooh, sniffing up the white lines
    He's dancing on the breadline
    He's dancing on the breadline

    Watch him dance

    Ooh, about to lose his lifeline
    He's looking for a headline
    Ooh, sniffing up the white lines
    He's dancing on the breadline
    No one, nothing, nowhere
    The breadline, dancing on the breadline
    Dancing on the breadline
    He forgot and he ain't got nothing Writer/s: Bud Prager, Dave Mustaine, Marty Friedman

  • Dan Gillespy from Courtenay BcIt might not be as heavy like the classic Megadeth songs but I still like it.
