HALLELUJAH, I'M A BUM AGAIN!

Rockefeller's busy giving dough away;
Chevrolet is busy making cars;
Hobo, you keep busy when they throw away
Slightly used cigars.
Hobo, you've no time to shirk.
You're busy keeping far away from work.

The weather' s getting fine.
The coffee tastes like wine.
You happy hobo, sing,
"Hallelujah, I'm a bum again!"
Why work away for wealth
When you can travel for your health?
It' s spring, you hobo, sing,
"Hallelujah, I'm a bum again!"
Your home is always near;
The moon's your chandelier;
Your ceiling is the sky,
Way up high.
The road is your estate,
The earth your little dinner plate;
It's spring, you hobo, sing,
"Hallelujah, I'm a bum again!"

From Wiki:

Hallelujah, I'm a Bum is a 1933 American musical comedy film directed by Lewis Milestone in the Depression.

The film stars Al Jolson as Bumper, a popular New York tramp, and both romanticizes and satirizes the hobo lifsetyle that many people were forced into by the economic conditions of the time. It is often noted for its heavy Leftist overtones and freewheeling style. Amongst its supporting cast were Frank Morgan, silent comedian Harry Langdon and Keystone Kop Chester Conklin.

The music for the film was composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart.
