Corey Smith - Keeping Up With The Joneses Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Back in the day, back in the hills, we were busted,
  • Made a living on the government dime.
  • Mama couldn't keep a job,
  • and the alimony check never came on time.
  • We were poor. I wasn't proud, only angry
  • that our daddy couldn't send us more.
  • Always embarrassed by my free lunch card,
  • and food stamps for the grocery store.
  • No keeping up with the Joneses.
  • No keeping up with the Joneses.
  • When you're stuck on the bottom,
  • You take what you can get.
  • I went to school in hand-me-downs from my cousin,
  • Baggy britches seemed to suit me well,
  • Kinda thin, kinda loose in the middle,
  • Slouching in after the tardy bell.
  • The teacher never called me trash,
  • But I knew what she was thinking when she looked at me,
  • Born to be the underclass,
  • Growing up to make a living on our charity.
  • No keeping up with the Joneses.
  • No keeping up with the Joneses.
  • When you're stuck on the bottom,
  • You take what you can get.
  • Don't go looking down your nose at me neighbor,
  • I can spot you from a yard away,
  • Don't try to judge me by the clothes I'm wearing or the cars in my driveway.
  • I'm not rich but I'm not poor any longer,
  • And I'm happy as a man can be.
  • I'm proud to work, I'm proud to pay my taxes,
  • And I'm grateful for my family.
  • No keepin' up with the Joneses,
  • No keepin' up with the Joneses,
  • When you come up from the bottom,
  • You love whatever you got.
  • Ain't nothing, ain't no one, gonna hold me down.
  • Ain't nothing, ain't no one, gonna hold me down.
