Album: Premonition (1981)
Charted: 33
  • Baby if you really love me
    You had better understand
    That the silver in your pocket
    ain't no measure of a man
    And though the fortunes of our fathers
    We aspire to rise above
    When you're born into a breed
    you're signed in blood
    I'm a poor man's son, workin all night long
    Got a bad guitar and a simple song
    you're a rich man's daughter, look at what you've done
    You went and fell in love with a poor man's son
    Baby you were born in splendor
    To a house of wealth and fame
    Your mother was a spender
    And you grew up on a stage
    And girl you could've loved for money
    Could've fooled around for fame
    But you went and took a chance
    On the real thing
    And though the fortunes of our fathers
    We aspire to rise above
    When you're born into a breed
    you're signed in blood
    I'm a poor man's son, workin all night long
    Got a bad guitar and a simple song
    you're a rich man's daughter
    You're a rich man's daughter
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son
    (Poor man's son, workin' all night long)
    I'm a poor man's son
    A poor man's son
    (Poor man's son, workin' all night long)
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son
    (Poor man's son, workin' all night long)
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son
    (Poor man's son, workin' all night long)
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son
    (Poor man's son, workin' all night long)
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son
    (Poor man's son, workin' all night long)
    I'm a poor man's son
    I'm a poor man's son Writer/s: FRANK SULLIVAN, JIM PETERIK
