I'm lost and all alone what do I do
The girl that I'm in love with says we're through
How can I just let her go
Answers on a postcard please
It seems while I've been doing this and that
She's been carrying on behind my back
Why was I the last to know
Answers on a postcard please
And I don't know what rights if any I have
When it comes to little old me
You can be held for days without even being charged
They call it democracy
I never thought of this happening to us
It happens all the time of course it does
Devil did he play a role
Answers on a postcard please
(break)
And I don't know what rights if any I have
When it comes to, comes to seeing
Everything you've worked so hard for
All your life
Been smashed to smithereens
I'm lost and like a fool I found my way
Deep inside this dark secluded bay
How'd I get here I don't know
Answers on a postcard please
How'd I get here I don't know
Answers on a postcard please
