lyrics

Just four dollars in my pocket
And I'm wondering how far
It will take me from this place
If I hop inside my car.

I keep pulling up my bootstraps, they somehow hide.
Living on a shoestring, that's about to come untied.

Suppose my mirror is enchanted
And all the things I see
Aren't even close to what they are,
Just what I wish they'd be?

I keep pulling up my bootstraps, they somehow hide.
Living on a shoestring, that's about to come untied.

Maybe if I knuckle down and buckle down,
I could move into a sweeter part of town.
Lay down my plans and dreams, give up my schemes,
Maybe I could get ahead...

Well, I'm down to just two quarters,
Three nickels, and a dime.
If a genie ever came my way,
With my luck, he'd charge me for his time.

I keep pulling up my bootstraps, they somehow hide.
Living on a shoestring, that's about to come untied.
