My my, but time do flyWhen it’s in another pair of handsAnd a loser I will beFor I’ve never been a winnerIn my lifeI used the sucker pillsAnd pity for the selfThough it’s the animal in meBut I’d rather be a beggar manOn the shelfDon’t be so forlornIt’s just the payoffIt’s the rain before the stormOn a better dayI’ll take you by the handAnd lead you thru’ the doorsDon’t you let my letterGet you downMy my, but time do flyWhen it’s in another pair of pantsAnd illusion I will beFor I’ve never been a sinnerLa-de-dah
