Tell me a story


What must I do to take a holiday



Show me a bill that they can make me pay

Tell me a story

And maybe I'll believe it


Me I'm just a lucky guy

Young and free

Too hard to cry


Lorna from my school she's 21


She's good looking and a married girl so

Tell me a story

Tell me stories
And man I ain't complaining





Me I'm just a lucky guy

Too tough to cry
Young and hard



Standing in a show

The lights ain't low


They're shining down on me
And I like, I like it

Just like I like I like it

I'm taking like I find it


What did they do to chill the joy away



What did they do to say you had to pay
And pay

And pay


Tell me stories
You know I never can believe them

Never ever




Me I'm just a lucky guy
I'm young and free
Too dumb to cry




What must I do to take a holiday


Show me a bill that they can make me pay
Tell me a story

And maybe I'll believe it



Me I'm just a lucky guy

I'm Young and free

Too hard to cry
