Bon Jovi Rich Man Living In A Poor Man’s House Lyrics

Billy works too hard, trying to make ends meet

He’s gotta pay his credit cards

Yeah, he’s been dealing with the odds

That even Vegas can’t beat

By six he’s out of bed, she makes his coffee sweet

He grabs his boots and his coat

Leaves a note that says, ‘I love you’

And runs to catch a bus down at the end of market street

It took some time to figure it out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

He might be down, but he ain’t out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

Every night at home, feels like it’s Christmas Eve

And Gracie’s got his dinner on the stove, Daddy’s coming home

And they’ve got seven hungry children

That are tugging on his sleeve

It took some time to figure it out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

He might be down, but he ain’t out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

Every night at five when work lets out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

He arrives at nine as the work bell’s ringing

And he hits the grind but his heart is singing, yeah

Some men live for money, some men live for work

But it’s a real man, richer man who knows what love’s worth

It took some time to figure it out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

He might be down but he ain’t out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

Every night at five when work lets out

He’s a rich man living in a poor man’s house

Sha la la la la la la la

Rich man living in a poor man’s house

Rich man living in a poor man’s house

Rich man living in a poor man’s house

Rich man living in a poor man’s house

Rich man living in a poor man’s house

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh oh yeah, hey
