Once I had fame
Oh, I was full of pride
There were a lot of friends
Always by my side

But my fame, oh, it died
And now my friends began to hide
Everybody loves a winner
But when you lose you lose alone

Every way I turned
There was hello and a smile
I never thought that it
Would be gone after awhile

But my bankroll went down, oh
And the smiles turned to frowns
Everybody loves a winner
But when you lose you lose alone

Once I had a love
Oh but I wouldn't be true
To get back that love
Ain't nothing I wouldn't do

But I've loved and I've lost
Oh, and now I paid the cost
Everybody loves a winner
Say it again
Everybody loves a winner
But when you lose you lose alone
