10000 Maniacs lyrics - Dust bowl



Lyrics:

I should know to leave them home. They follow me through the store
   with
   these toys I can\'t afford. \"Kids, take them back, you know better than
   that.\"
   Dolls that talk, astronauts, T.V. games, airplanes, they don\'t
   understand
   and how can I explain? I try and try but I can\'t save. Pennies,
   nickels,
   dollars slip away. I\'ve tried and tried but I can\'t save.
   My youngest girl has bad fever, sure. All night with alcohol to cool
   and
   rub her down. Ruby, I\'m tired, try and get some sleep. I\'m adding
   doctor\'s
   fees to remedies with the cost of three day\'s work lost. I try and try
   but
   I can\'t save. Pennies, nickels, dollars slip away. I\'ve tried and
   tried but
   I can\'t save. The hole in my pocketbook is growing.
   There\'s a new wind blowing they say, it\'s gonna be a cold, cold one.
   So
   brace yourselves my darlings, it won\'t bring anything much our way but
   more
   dust bowl days.
   I played a card i nthis weeks game. Took the first and the last
   letters in
   three of their names. This lottery\'s been building up for weeks. I
   could be
   lucky me with the five million prize, tears of disbelief spilling out
   of my
   eyes. I try and try but I can\'t save. Pennies, nickels, dollars slip
   away.
   I\'ve tried and tried but I can\'t save. The hole in my pocketbook is
   growing.
   There\'s a new wind blowing they say, it\'s gonna be a cold, cold one.
   So
   brace yourselves my darlings, it won\'t bring anything much our way but
   more
   dust bowl days
