about

From the movie The Prospects.

lyrics

It's hard to make ends meet:
choose between the rent and getting something to eat
What a choice to make every day of the week
Do you give it up and get a real job?
Do you give in to the urge to commit robbery?
Because you've got a few plans that might succeed

But you're too poor to be proud
Can't afford to be down and out
Do you have any prospects
or are you just fucking around?

So what's a poor boy to do
when he's in the red and beaten black and blue
for a paycheck that he can't refuse?
They say, "It's time to act your age."
It's a full-time job, but it pays a shitty wage
It's not the kind of thing you can take

But you're too poor to be proud
Can't afford to be down and out
Do you have any prospects
or are you just fucking around?

Because laws are for the rich
And as for the poor:
Morals are something that you can't afford
So you make a plan,
and you call a friend—
your criminal mastermind is at it again
But it always turns out you've just been fucking around
