Lyrics

Well, I got on my watch and my gold diamond ring
Got on my new suit of brown
I'm sittin' on your doorstep crying for your love
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town
Beggin' for kisses I guess I'll never see
Longin' for love, warm and sweet
Askin' for miracles I know can never be
I look better than the beggar in the street
Well, I got on my watch and my gold diamond ring
Got on my new suit of brown
I'm sittin' on your doorstep crying for your love
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town

Beggin' for kisses I guess I'll never see
Longin' for love, warm and sweet
Askin' for miracles I know can never be
I look better than the beggar in the street
Well, I got on my watch and my gold diamond ring
Got on my new suit of brown
I'm sittin' on your doorstep crying for your love
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town
