Even for the words to describe your predicament you are stuck
Without any money and down on your luck
When you are at your lowest you are on your own
Where are they when you need them the friends you have known?
They were your drinking mates in the local bar
When you are in financial trouble you know who your friends are
When your financial circumstances changed out of your life they did disappear
Things can hardly be any worse for you next year
That your ex friends only liked you for who you were you have come to realize
In hindsight it does seem one becomes more wise
Your friends of the past are not your friends today
When you meet them on the street they look the other way
Like every other poor sad sack of the town
You know who your friends are when you are financially down.
