    well once i lived the life of a millionaire
    spending my money, i didn't care
    takin' my friends out for a mighty good time
    buyin' boot leg liquor, champagne and wine
    then i began to fall so low
    couldn't find me no friends
    had no place to go
    if i ever get my hands on a dollar again
    i'm gonna hold on to it, till the eagle grins

    i said nobody knows you
    when you're down and out
    in your pocket, you ain't got one penny
    and your friends, you didn't have any
    just as soon as you get up on your feet again
    here they all come, they say that they're your long-lost friend
    oh lord without a doubt
    nobody wants you
    nobody needs you
    nobody wants you
    when you're down and out

    i say

    nobody wants you
    nobody needs you
    nobody wants you when you're down and out
  • eric clapton'ın bu şarkıyı uyuşturucu sorunuyla uğraştığı (then i began to fall so low/couldn't find me no friends) yıllardan sonra tekrar yükselişini sağlamış olan unplugged albümünde söylemiş olmasında müthiş bir ironi vardır kanaatimce. sanırım birileri feci halde ayar almıştır, hak edene vereceksin zaten ayarı.
  • harika bi eric clapton sarkisidir. şöyle der kendisi bu şarkısında : düşenin dostu olmaz...bi nevi..

    once i lived the life of a millionaire,
    spent all my money, i just did not care.
    took all my friends out for a good time,
    bought bootleg whisky, champagne and wine.

    then i began to fall so low,
    lost all my good friends, i did not have nowhere to go.
    i get my hands on a dollar again,
    i'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins.

    'cause no, no, nobody knows you
    when you're down and out.
    in your pocket, not one penny,
    and as for friends, you don't have any.

    when you finally get back up on your feet again,
    everybody wants to be your old long-lost friend.
    said it's mighty strange, without a doubt,
    nobody knows you when you're down and out.

    when you finally get back upon your feet again,
    everybody wants to be your good old long-lost friend.
    said it's mighty strange,
    nobody knows you,
    nobody knows you,
    nobody knows you when you're down and out.
