Thread Name: Lyr Req: I Wonder What It Feels Like to Be Poor
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Lord Rothschild said to me...
I sing this as part of a medley of music hall songs there are many different verses to keep it topical the first verse was pretty standard

I wonder wha it feels like to be poor
To have the world forever at your door
there are thousands of poor men
who only earn a hundred pounds a week
who only get ten meals a day
and never dare to speak
Oh my heart bleeds when I think about
those shabby boots and clothes they wear
a life like their's I never could endure
only last night over tea
Baron Rothchild said to me
Oh I wonder what it feels like
to be poor.

ssung in a cockney accent.
