Walked into my apartment was freezin' cold
Went to see my landlord; he's much too bold
I said you gotta do something about this heat
He said you better deal with it or you can just get beat
I can barely afford to pay my rent. Got a dozen bills that the mailman sent
I guess you heard all of this before
But I gotta do something about that hole in my door

Went lookin through the Want-ads to find myself a home
Went to the bank, they wouldn't give me a loan
They said your credit is no good you're down in a hole
You need low income housing and rent control
Well, I'm getting really good at barely getting by
My boss don't know how hard I try
When I ask for a raise, he just moans
He drives a Mercedes and I ain't got not home

Well, I'm so broke - Apartment blues
It ain't no joke - Apartment blues
It's a cryin shame - Apartment blues
I'm goin insane with that old Apartment blues

I found me a home; it don't have any space
But I never did expect a fireplace
I used to be freezing but now I'm too hot
I asked for more heat and this is what I got
I shouldn't complain; I don't pay no rent
It's just as well cause the money's spent
I'm tired of playin this silly game
But I'll surely get used to it all just the same

Well, I'm so broke - Apartment blues
It ain't no joke - Apartment blues
It's a cryin shame - Apartment blues
I'm goin insane with that old Apartment blues
