Artist/Band: Great Big Sea
Lyrics for Song: Nothing Out Of Nothing
Lyrics for Album: UP [1995]



I left my home and my family by the ocean

Out on my own, to seek my fortune

But there is no work to occupy these young hands

So look out boy you're heading for the mainland



(Chorus)

What do you do? You can't make nothing out of nothing

Everbody needs a start

What do you do? You can't make nothing out of nothing

Give my country back it's heart.



Well, I was born on a St.John's street

Where all my hopes could meet with defeat

I hide my fear in higher education

Now I am so smart I could rule this content-nation



Chorus



Now I'm alone but I'm working everyday

I'm getting stoned and I'm blowing all my pay

Just to survive I'll do whatever I can

Now, I'm alive, but how can I be a real man?



Chorus
