Lyrics:

This ain't your regular honky-tonk song,
no, this ain't a crazy piece for claves and gong,
and I ain't a guru with my head in the air.

No, I'm just a poor boy
whispering my prayer;
Oh Lord listen to my plea
and slide an extra dollar on down here to me,
slide an extra dollar on down here to me.

Look out baby there's a hole in the roof
and the rain is pouring in;
can't afford a plumber so you better get ready
'cause now you got to sink or swim.

This ain't your regular grocery store,
no this ain't a hotel with a spin around door,
and I might look happy sitting here in this chair,

but I'm just a poor boy
whispering my prayer;
Oh Lord listen to my plea
and slide an extra dollar on down here to me,
slide an extra dollar on down here to me

Come on now let's all go out for a ride
if you dare get in this car;
can't afford a cobbler so the brake shoes are shot
and we better not try to go far.

This ain't your regular honky-tonk song,
no, this ain't a crazy piece for claves and gong,
and I ain't a guru with my head in the air.

No, I'm just a poor boy
whispering my prayer;
Oh Lord listen to my plea
and slide an extra dollar on down here to me,
slide an extra dollar on down here to me.

1999 James M. Cooper
