Lyrics

All I Ever Do Is Put Me Down

All I ever do is put me down
When I'm alone or hanging round the town
I hear the voice come whispering in my ear:
'You're a loser you're a loser do you hear'

I try to shut me out i drink a beer
But I won't go away i stay right here
'You're a no good bum a water like they said'
My words sink to the bottom of me like lead

(Ch) Oh all I ever do is put me down
When I'm alone or hanging round the town
I hear the voice come whispering in my ear:
"You're a loser you're a loser do you hear"

I try to get been trying to for years
Soon as I do the devil re-appears
Is he right or is he wrong who knows
here he comes dressed in familiar clothes

I try to get up but I put me down
I'm tired of being a nobody in this town
I turn a corner there I am again
Following me around since the lord knows when

(ch)

I try to shut me out I drink a beer
Beer or tequila's all they got right here
You're a no good nothing everybody was right
You've got no friends no nothing but the night

I go back inside "darling where've you been?"
"Out for a walk downtown I mean"
"Did you see anybody?" "No just myself
In an old shop window grinning on a shelf"

(ch)
