Song Lyrics

My, my, the time do fly

When it`s in another pair of hands

And a loser I will be

For I`ve never been a winner in my life

I got used to stressing pain

I used the s*cker pills to pity for the self

Oh, it`s the animal in me

But I`d rather be a beggarman on the shelf

Don`t be so forlorn, it`s just the payoff

It`s the rain before the storm

On a better day, I`ll take you by the hand

And I`ll walk you through the doors

Don`t be so forlorn, it`s just the payoff

It`s the rain before the storm

Don`t you let my letter get you down

Don`t you, don`t you, don`t you, don`t you

My, my, but time do fly

When it`s in another pair of pants

And illusion I will be

For I`ve never been a sinner, la di da

Don`t be so forlorn, it`s just the payoff

It`s the rain before the storm

Don`t you let my letter get you down

Don`t you, don`t you, don`t you, don`t you

nwod uoy teg rettel ym tel uoy t`nod

Don`t you let my letter get you down, down, down, down

Don`t you, don`t you, don`t you, don`t you

Don`t you let my letter get you down, down, down, down

Don`t you, don`t you, don`t you, don`t you

Down, down, down, down, down, down

Down, down, down, down, down, down

Down, down, down, down, down, down

Original Version
