Bone Broke
The White Stripes Lyrics


Hey, hey

Look closer, you can see all the money
I got a dollar bill in the cockpit
Surprised that your wallet is a black hole
I got another job at the liquor store, damn!

Oh well, I'm bone broke

They got a white pony in the stable
And ride him when the doggie isn't able
But he doesn't really care because they pay him
But, still, a black suit is gonna shake him down

Oh well, I'm bone broke
Hey, broke as I'll ever be

It look another way, girl, I'm telling ya
God gave seven minutes right to ya
And your mother put her money into platinum
And now you never have to pay attention, do ya, do ya?

Uh huh

Yeah, I'm kneeling on a brick with my nails
I'm telling her the money's in the mail
Keeps shiny in my box, never fake it
But now the brick breaker's gonna break it down

Oh well, I'm bone broke

Look another way, girl, I'm telling ya
God gave seven minutes right to ya
Your mother put her money into platinum
So that you wouldn't have to pay attention, right?

Hey
Look closer and you see
I will be running it
I got a hundred dollar bill
In the cockpit
Surprised me in the line
Is a blackhole
I got another job
At the liquor store

Damn
Oh well
I'm bone broke

They got a white pony
In the stable
And ride him
When the doggie isn't able
He doesn't really care
Because they pay him
But still a black suit
Is gonna shake him

Down
Oh well
I'm bone broke
Yeah
As broke as I'll ever be

Looking at the way girl
I'm telling ya
God gave 7 minutes right too ya
And your mother put her money into platinum
And now you never have to pay attention

Do ya?

Yeah
I'm nailing on a brick
With my nails
I'm sending loads of moneys
In the mail
Keep shouting in my box yeah for saying
And the the brick breakers
Gonna break it down

Oh well
I'm bone broke

Looking at the way girl
I'm telling ya
God gave 7 minutes right too ya
Your mother put her money into platinum
So that you wouldn't have to pay attention

Im glad so many people love the white stripes.

Alexander Meling Sivertsen

how come they never play this live? Its awesome, and it's not very hard to play.

Nicky Stee

Its not hard to play, but it's VERY demanding vocally, hitting that high B note..

Jean-Louis L'Ecuyer

its a very good song in every aspect and the sound is crazy i just love it

POCILLO

Please do not expose this fucking awesome work of art to someone who is under the influence of alcohol. It will escalate quite rapidly.
