Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh, one, two, one, two, three, four
Verse 2
Oh, I've got a sheet for my bed and a pillow for my head
I've got a pencil full of lead and some water for my throat
I've got buttons for my coat and sails on my boat
So much more than I needed before
Verse 3
I got money in the meter and a two bar heater
Oh, now it's getting hotter, oh, it's only getting sweeter
I got legs on my chair and a head full of hair
Pot and a pan and some shoes on my feet
Verse 4
I got a shelf full of books and most of my teeth
A few pairs of socks and a door with a lock
I got food in my belly and a license for my telly
And nothing's gonna bring me down
Verse 5
Oh, no, oh
Oh no, oh no, nothin's gonna bring me down
Verse 6
I got a nice guitar and tires on my car
I got most of the means and scripts for the scenes
I'm out and about so I'm in with a shout
I got a fair bit of chat but better than that
Verse 7
Food in my belly and a license for my telly
And nothing's going to bring me down
Verse 8
Oh, nothin', oh, nothin'
Nothing's going to bring me down, oh
Verse 9
But best of all I've got my baby
Oh, best of all I've got my baby
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down, oh, ooh
Verse 10
Oh, best of all I've got my baby
Oh, best of all I've got my baby
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down
Verse 11
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down, not today, no, no
