Will Luikinga was de tekstschrijver voor Papa Was A Poor Man. Nu wil het geval dat Jack de Nijs enorm stotterde - naar zeggen van Will is dit echt waar - en Will had bedacht dat het wel leuk zou zijn om Jack de letter p veelvuldig te laten zingen in dit lied en als een soort van grap ook het woord 'poor' te laten herhalen. Dat is waarschijnlijk de gimmick van het lied geworden.

Songtekst

(c)1974 Planet Music, Roosendaal

He ain't got no money
He ain't got no job
But mama always felt so happy
Cause papa was the best lookin' man who came around
Each day he came along, he sang a little song
He made that mama felt so happy
They've got a little son and papa got a cradle down town

Yeah, I'm talking about papa
He was the poor richest man in town
I never saw a man who was so fine
Like papa he was the only friend of mine
Yeah, papa he was the poor richest man in town
And when he brought some money on a saturday night
For mama the sunday was allright

Papa was a poor man
Papa was a poor poor poor poor poor poor poor man
[2x]

He ain't got no house
He ain't got no car
But mama always felt so happy
'Cause papa was the only man who tried so hard
And when he had no foon
Ma always understood
She smiled, she always felt so happy
For papa said tomorrow's there's another start
