Song Lyrics

I’m tired, so tired I can hardly stand
I can’t breathe in the air in this city tonight
It’s taken everything I had to give
And now, I just want to get out of here


But I won’t be sorry if you won’t be
And I don’t want your pity or sympathy
But for forty five dollars I can make it
You wait and see


He came from Miami to start out again
I hear that he’s back with his mother ill
He told me he loved me and he wanted my child
But you know people change their minds


But I won’t be sorry if you won’t be
And I don’t want your pity or sympathy
But with forty five dollars I can make it
You wait and see


But I won’t be sorry if you won’t be
And I don’t want your pity or your sympathy
But with forty five dollars I can make it
You wait and see

It isn’t as if I was just anybody
On Broadway I danced for that Senator
They know me in London and they know me in Paris
I’m only talking because you look like you needed a friend


But I won’t sorry if you won’t be
And I don’t want your pity or your sympathy
But with forty five dollars I’m halfway
To Miami
