Nobody Loves You (When You're Down And Out)
John Lennon

"Oh, wonderful, wonderful."
"Nineteen!"
"Do it the other way!"

Nobody loves you when you're down and out
Nobody knows you when you're on cloud nine
Ev´rybody's hustlin' for a buck and a dime
I'll scratch your back and you scratch mine

I've been across to the other side
I've shown you ev´rything, I got nothing to hide
But still you ask me, do I love you?
What it is, what it is?
All I can tell you is it's all show biz
All I can tell you is it's all show biz

What it is? What it is? What it is?

Nobody loves you when you're down and out
Nobody knows you when you're on cloud nine
Ev´rybody's hustlin' for a buck and a dime
I'll scratch your back and you knife mine

I´v been across the water now so many times
I've seen the one eyed witchdoctor leading the blind
But still you ask me, do I love you?
What you say, what you say?
Ev´rytime I put my finger on it, it slips away
Ev´rytime I put my finger on it, it slips away

What you say? What you say? What you say? What you say?

Well I get up in the morning
And I'm looking in the mirror to see, ooo wee!
Then I'm lying in the darkness
And you know I can't get to sleep, ooo wee!

One, two, three, four

Nobody loves you when you're old and grey
Nobody needs you when you're upside down
Ev´rybody's hollerin' 'bout their own birthday
Ev´rybody loves you when you're six foot in the ground.

"Alright, let´s go and have a listen and break from it ..."
