Song Meaning
Verse 1
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
so that every mouth can be fed
Poor me, the Israelite Aah
Verse 2
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me, the Israelite Aah
Verse 3
My wife and my kids, they are packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen
Poor me, the Israelite Aah
Verse 4
Shirt them a-tear up, trousers are gone
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
Poor me, the Israelite Aah
Verse 5
After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm You sound the alarm
Poor me, the Israelite Aah
Verse 6
Poor me, the Israelite
I wonder who I'm working for
Poor me, Israelite,
I look a-down and out, sir
