For lots of lucky years None of things has shifted: I havenít been ímongst the rich, Deals with girls are similar. For years Iíve practiced theft, And I havenít been lazy - I should have garnered wealth, But Iíve drunk like crazy. Sometimes Iím a poor thing, Longing for a penny. Iíve gotten nor friends nor inn, And I canít get any. Iíve kept on right along Carding and hard drinking. All Iíve performed is wrong, Wrong from the beginning!
