lyrics

Black-eyed Susan's back in town
She came by to bring us down
With her bread and butter face
She really lights up the place

She's in trouble deep
One foot in the grave
Rent's due in a week
She needs one more drink

Go downtown, hang around
I don't know, why we go
I don't know, why we stay
I don't know, what we're doing

Jack used to be good for a laugh
Now he's just a punching bag
Jack thinks he is Cary Grant
Jack is more like Ray Milland

He's here every night
Looking for a fight
One foot in the grave
He can not be saved

I'm in trouble deep
One foot in the street
Rent's due in a week
I need one more drink
I'm here every night
Looking for a fight
One foot in the grave
I can not be saved
