    Well I dropout the school when I was young
    I thought living was just all fun
    Then I met trouble in every turn
    Now I'm one step away from being a bum
    Lord I tried everything within my power
    But I can't make but just a dollar an hour
    You can't make a living on that kind of pay
    And it hurts my pride to hear all say
    Hey Mr. Dropout what's that you say
    Sorry Mr. Dropout we can't use you today
    Well I got married bout one year ago
    A winter's coming on and the work gets slow
    Mary had a baby that got blue eyes
    When baby gets hungry baby cries
    Lord I tried everything within my power
    But I can't make but just a dollar an hour
    You can't feed a family with that kind of pay
    And it hurts my pride to hear all say
    Hey Mr. Dropout what's that you say
    Sorry Mr. Dropout we can't use you today
