"I Struggle and Fight"

"I Struggle and Fight"

I struggle real hard and I fight; now I'm down to my last mite

Not sure if there will be enough, for the kids to eat it's been pretty rough

But we plod along even though it looks dour, we can always make bread with a little flour

Vitamins and nutrients is what we need, so vegetable soup is what we'll feed

In times like these I'm usually frank; we may just have to use the food bank

We can cut off the cable and maybe the phone, of course all the kids will probably moan

Things were great when times were good; we always had lots of food

I said to my spouse, don't worry honey, a new job will happen that will make us money

Haven't had any works now for a little while, sometimes it wants to steal your smile

But I'll play guitar as I struggle along, yes, maybe I'll write another song

Please don't write me and ask if it's true, I know that this is what most folks do

We will always make do with what we have; somehow I don't think that we will starve

The economy's bad as we all know, but people are still on the go

The best things in life are just not free; things will turn around just wait and see

Even though we desperately need money, it's a nice warm day and the sky is sunny

In our family though we still have love, I think we'll pray tonight to God above
