When I was young, when I was a boy I tried to have fun
Then the world was cruel to me and now I’ve become
A lowly beggar sitting in the sun.

Look at my life, learn from my mistakes and find a good wife
Someone who will love you till the day that you die
A girl who sings the sweetest lullabies

Penniless now, sleeping underneath a bridge across town
If I gained an ounce of luck I’d lose it somehow
My hope is dead my dreams are in the ground

This is the end, dying on my own without any friends
Not even and enemy to make my amends,
Given the chance I’d do it all again
