Nothing Out of Nothing

I left my home and my family by the ocean
Out on my own, to seek my fortune
But there's no work to occupy these young hands
So look out boy, you're headed for the mainland

Chorus:
And what do you do? You can't make nothing out of nothing
Everybody needs a start
And what do you do? You can't make nothing out of nothing
Give my country back its heart

Now I was born on a St. John's street
Where all my hopes could meet with defeat
I hired my days to higher education
Now I'm so smart I've got ruinous condemnation

Chorus

Now I'm alone but I'm workin' everyday
I'm getting stoned and blowin' all my pay
Just to survive I'll do whatever I can
Now I'm alive, but I cannot be a real man

Chorus (2x)
