Oh, dear landlord
Please heed these words that I speak
I know you’ve suffered much
But you are not so unique

When that ole steamboat whistle blows
I’m gonna give you all I got to give
And I do hope you receive it well
Depending on the way you feel that you live

Eh, dear landlord
Please don’t put a price on my soul
Oh, I give my do all do
If I lose my control

All of us at times, we might work too hard
To have it too fast and too much
But anyone can do the same thing
He can feel but he just can’t touch

Eh, dear landlord
Please don’t dismiss my case
Don’t you know, I’m not about to argue
Or move to no other place

Each of us has his own special gift
And you know this was meant to be
And if you don’t underestimate me
Sure don’t underestimate me

Oh, dear landlord
