Lyrics

Billy was a bad boy he fell off at age thirteen
And fallen angels fall so hard at his age

He blew away six children – His schoolyard enemies
When asked him why the only thing he would say

I’m all alone
He moaned and groaned

Sally was a sassy sultry sweet sixteen beaut queen
And all she cared about was sitting pretty

But then John Cocker knocked and locked her up and ate the key
And drug her by the hair far from the city

I’m all alone
He moaned and groaned

Mr. Markley was a circus marksman from Madrid
Blind-folded he could shoot a fruit off his wife

But once somebody sneezed he shot her in the head instead
And just before he shook and took his own life

I’m all alone
He moaned and groaned

How could I reject you when you just rejected me?
You say nobody loves you but you’re lyin’

And how do you expect me to respect you more and be
Behind you when you only talk of dyin’?

I’m all alone
You moan and groan
