john “papa” gros – old joe’s turkey lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
what happened to the shoes on my feet?
one more night of runnin’ the streets
where did i go? why am i here?
i thought i had me a couple of beers
at the bar she sat legs criss+crossed
her eyes were blue with skin so soft
she said, “come with me, i’ll show you around”
and finagle a way back up town

[chorus]
she’s beautiful, beautiful, she’s so fine
i wish i could afford her a bottle of wine
a little bit of happy ain’t gonna hurt me
’cause i’m as poor as old joe’s turkey
(he’s as poor as joe’s turkey)

[verse 2]
we got uptown, she couldn’t find her key
then she asked if she could stay with me
no house, no job, no car has she
i fell in love so instantly

[chorus]
she’s beautiful, beautiful, she’s so fine
i wish i could afford her a bottle of wine
a little bit of happy ain’t gonna hurt me
’cause i’m as poor as old joe’s turkey
(he’s as poor as joe’s turkey)
[bridge]
our vows exchanged on claymont avenue
and honeymoon behind the zoo
life is fun, life is free
that’s my girl, she’s the one for me
(she’s his girl) she’s the one for me

[chorus]
she’s beautiful, beautiful, she’s so fine
i wish i could afford her a bottle of wine
a little bit of happy ain’t gonna hurt me
see, i’m as poor as old joe’s turkey
