There was backstreets of Birmingham
Taking my clothes and my food and a trash can
Sleeping in alleys at night, making love to a bottle of wine
'Cause you know life is to succeed
But that was back when Judy loved me
Somewhere in yesterday, seems a million miles away.

Back in the days Judy used to beg me to take her away
But I was too young and livin' was fun
I didn't know how time would change me
Life slid by me too fast, the fun didn't last
It's too late to get back to the days when Judy loved me.

Riding a frieght train goin' nowhere
Don't use mirrors anymore, they show my grey hair
Giving my place in the welfare line
Trading my soup for a bottle of wine
'Cause you know life is to succeed
But that was back when Judy loved me.

Somewhere in yesterday, seems a million miles away
Back in the days Judy used to beg me to take her away
But I was too young and livin' was fun
I didn't know how time would change me.

Life slid by me too fast, the fun didn't last
It's too late to get back to the days when Judy loved me
Back when Judy loved me.
Back when Judy loved me...
