lyrics

The land / I’m livin’ in / It’s a cold one / It’s
a ruff skin / But the woman / I am livin’ with
/ It’s a warm one / It’s a ruff skin / She’s not
my gal / She my kin / These are ruff times /
So we live in sin

Ruff skin roommate / I said ruff skin roommate

There’s a huge difference / Between wants
and needs / I’ve never been good with this /
So I keep us in need / Money’s always tight /
So she shares the fight / Doesn’t blame me
but she knows / Money don’t bring the hype
/ She’s not my gal’ / She my kin / These are
ruff times / So we live in sin

Maybe she likes it that way / Maybe she
enjoys it too / What we have and what we are
/ Isn’t it good for you? / I mean enough for
you? / Is it enough for you? / I expect more
and more and more / I mean of me and you /
You’re not my gal’ / You my kin! / These are
ruff times / So we live in sin
