STILL, STILL IN DEBT.
Written and Sung by J. C. Rich.
Once I was the gayest in the land.
With wealth and servants at my command;
Once I had bright gold in store,
Now I am the poorest of the poor.
Still, still in debt, still, still in debt.
Where has my money gone to that to me was left?
Where are my clothes in which I cut the fashion fine?
My uncle has got them for some coin.
Still, still in debt, still, still in debt!
Once with lords and dukes I could dine,
And turn out in fashion fine;
Once the daintiest of bits I could eat,
Now I know not the taste of meat.-Chorus.
To go to work I think it is a sin,
I have done none for years, so shall not begin;
When I think of work it makes me sweat,
So I shall have to remain in debt.- Chorus.
