    Born Broke -by Hellacopters – Im even going to add lyrics:

    Staying straight got me so strung out
    Being sure just put me in doubt
    Your teaching really made me dumb
    Don’t call me slacker ‘cuz I am a bum!

    Hang around the wrong kind of streets
    Can’t get out but I can take the heat
    Smokin’ cigarettes ’til I choke
    ‘Cuz I was born baby born to be broke

    Born broke
    Oh yes I’m born broke
    Oh yes I’m born broke
    Born broke ohh!

    Down another six-pack
    Please get ’em off my back
    If I can keep the I.R.S. away
    From my guitar I will be O.K.

    ‘Cuz I’m broke Oh yes I’m born broke
    Oh yes I’m born broke
    I’m born broke
    Born broke
    Oh yeah-yeah!

    Staying straight got me so strung out
    Being sure just put me in doubt
    Your teaching really made me dumb
    Don’t call me slacker ‘cuz I am a bum!

    Hang around the wrong kind of streets
    Can’t get out but I can take the heat
    Smokin’ cigarettes ’til I choke
    ‘Cuz I was born baby born to be broke

    Born broke
    Oh yes I’m born broke
    Oh yes I’m born broke
    Yes I’m born broke ohh!
    I’m broke
    Yes I’m born broke
    Yes I’m born broke
    Yes I’m born broke
    Yeah!!!
