I had to leave her when I done her wrong
Figured I would come back before too long
As soon as I moved out, you started comin' around
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Kick me when I'm down, down level with the ground
Spread it all around, all over this town
Everybody I know knows I nothin' but a clown
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Seems you got the story on the rumor mill
She had a billionaire uncle, she was in his will
You were cryin' at the funeral, makin' mounful sounds
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Kick me when I'm down, down level with the ground
Spread it all around, all over this town
Everybody I know knows I nothin' but a clown
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Figured that i knew when enough was enough
I went back to her place, to pick up all my stuff
I was slippin' in the back door, I heard you bouncin' in the bed
I forgot about my toothbrush, went for my gun instead

Picture in the paper, invitation in the mail
Couldn't make the wedding, couldn't go my bail
Got your honeymoon postcard, jailer brought it around
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down

Kick me when I'm down, down level with the ground
Spread it all around, all over this town
Everybody I know knows I nothin' but a clown
Ain't it like an old friend to kick me when I'm down
