lyrics

C H O R U S 1
Poor landlord, poor landlord
Poor landlord, poor landlord

V E R S E 1 A
Pity the landlord, with his whole heart and soul
He fights the good fight, and it’s taking its toll
As he marches to battle against rent control
Poor landlord

V E R S E 1 B
Corrupt city hall’s got him down on his knees
They’re raising his taxes, increasing his fees
He gives ’em donations, they vote as they please
Pool landlord

C H O R U S 2
Poor landlord, poor landlord, etc.

V E R S E 2 A
The rent board expects him to act like a saint
The tenants are whining, they file a complaint
Let ‘em put up with a little lead paint
Poor landlord

V E R S E 2 B
The heater’s broken, the roof has a leak
The rats in the attic are starting to reek
The real crime is that rent has been behind for a week
Poor landlord

B R I D G E
So let’s show some compassion
For the things he must go through.
He wouldn’t ever want to wish
His tragic fate on you.

I N S T R U M E N T A L

C H O R U S 3
Take pity on the
Poor landlord, poor landlord, etc.

V E R S E 3 A
The homeless are camping out all over town
They shit in the river, they’re turning it brown
And bringing his property values all down
Poor landlord

V E R S E 3 B
They want to build shelters, move folks out of tents
With subsidized housing, but that makes no sense
Because if they do, it will drive down the rents

C H O R U S 4
Poor landlord, poor landlord, etc.
