2 Poor Kids

Album: The Intro (2015)
  • I don't want no time on the big screen
    I'm okay with me and my ripped jeans and you, and you

    Messy hair, that's what he likes on me
    I don't care as long as we're happy and free
    To be just you and me, and free to be just you and me

    They think it's a shame
    That the world will never know our names
    But I think that's okay
    'Cause love gets ruined by money and power and fame and

    We're just two poor kids from a really rich city
    My oh my, what a pity
    'Cause we've got a love story unlike the rest
    No fancy suit and no fancy dress
    Just us, just us, just love, just love
    Just us, just us, just love, just love

    He picks her up in a Benz but
    My lover comes by himself and a dozen roses
    He probably stole 'em
    He's got a smudge of mud on his eye
    Here to makes me break into smile
    'Cause he drives them mad, oh, he drives them mad

    'Cause they think it's a shame
    That the world will never know our names
    But I think that's okay
    'Cause love gets ruined by money and power and fame and

    We're just two poor kids from a really rich city
    My oh my, what a pity
    'Cause we've got a love story unlike the rest
    No fancy suit and no fancy dress
    Just us, just us, just love, just love
    Just us, just us, just love, just love

    Dollar signs all around us
    We sneak onto the city bus
    Too blinded by what we have to notice
    Your mean old laughs

    Dollar signs all around us
    We sneak onto the city bus
    Too blinded by what we have
    To notice your mean old laughs

    And they think it's a shame
    That the world will never know our names
    But I think that's okay
    'Cause love gets ruined by money and power and fame and

    We're just two poor kids from a really rich city
    My oh my, what a pity
    'Cause we've got a love story unlike the rest
    No fancy suit and no fancy dress

    Just us, just us, just love, just love
    Just us, just us, just love, just love, love, lovecaWriter/s: RUTH BERHE
