He is looking for his marbles
He is searching everywhere
Everybody has some troubles
And he sure had his share

In this world of hardship
He is looking for a home
He cannot seem to find it
Wherever he does roam

He grew up in the projects
He struggled all his life
Once he had some prospects
He had children and a wife

Now he has a low down feeling
About how the cards were dealt
In his day, he did the dealing
And he remembers how it felt

Along came the big recession
He lost his job and family
He fell into a deep depression
After the divorce decree

His luck ran out a long time ago
And he is really not to blame
He lost his home and had to go
Lost his marbles, then the game
