Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir,

So that every mouth can be fed
   Eb   F         Bb     C#
Poo-oooor, me Israelite

Repeat verse chords

My wife and my kids, they pack up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen
Poor, me Israelite

Shirt them a-tear up, trousers are gone
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
Poor, poor, me poor, me Israelite

After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm You sound the alarm
Poor, me Israelite
