I was strolling the streets of the city
And by chance beat up two passers-by,
But when the cops came to arrest me -
At the station, I saw her and died.
Well, Iíd no idea why she came there.
She was getting her pass checked, I guess.
She was young, she was lovely, with blonde hair...
I decided to find her - oh yes.
I followed this girl to her door, see
But Iím a thug, so what could I say?
Had a drink then asked out this sweetie
To a nearby railway cafe.
But everyone there kept on staring -
I just screamed with rage, inwardly.
I almost smacked a guy for just daring
To wink at her, casually.
But I ordered her rolls with good caviar,
Let my cash flow out like a stream,
Sent requests for love songs on the guitar
And asked for "Cranes" to finish our dream.
I kept up my promises ítil sunrise -
Swore them over and over again,
Swore to the darling of my eyes:
Iíd been clean over five days, then.
I was saying my whole life was lost, see.
Blew my nose and sobbed in my sleeve.
She said, "Pay the right price, you can have me;
Itís okay with me - I believe."
I struck out at this young blonde beauty
As the blood boiled up deep inside
Knew why she was with the police, see:
That girl I saw once and just died!
