Sad life, bad lie

from by a Singer of Songs

lyrics

Johnny got his name
From a bottle his mother craved
His daddy got up and walked away
Now he knows
Johnny takes his walks
In the city after dark
In silence lonesome dogs bark
He hears them say

It’s a sad life
For people of my kind
And it’s a bad lie
To say I don’t mind

Johnny got his shame
From a woman without name
From the gambling without gain
His soul in dust
Just another day
Of Johnny dreaming of going away
An empty place, an empty face
Words to pray

It’s a sad life
For people of my kind
And it’s a bad lie
To say I don’t mind

But yeah, you probably want some useful information. Well, they live in Barcelona and they sing songs. That's about it.
