The Also Rans (The Cross)

(Roger Taylor) Fucked Again I was born on the twenty second floor of a bird cage I was bound to rock - I was born to rage When your daddy gets drunk and your ma has no hope And you're tough and you're young and you got enough rope And you make a wrong turn and you make some mistakes You run outta control and you ain't got no brakes And the country's a wreck and the government's cruel Then you better check out - if you wanna be cool It's a hard road - in a world that stinks God have mercy on the man that thinks It's a hard road - in a world that sucks God don't love you when you're out of luck So I work real hard and I earn my pay And I drink all night - it's the only way To make some fun outta life - just a little bit more And when I get up my nerve - I'm gonna rob me a store Or even find me a girl - you never know your luck And she'll cook and she'll clean - just to make a few bucks It's a grand old world - going down the pan And there ain't no cure - for an also ran Yeah it's a hard road - in a world that stinks God have mercy on a man that thinks Yeah it's a hard road - we're going down the pan God have mercy on the also rans You gotta have mercy on the also rans If you wanna get out you gotta be desperate Dan You know what I mean A hard road It's a hard road - when you're on your own It's a hard road - when your skin's the wrong tone It's a hard road - if your face don't fit It's a hard road - you gotta take a lotta shit 'Cos God don't love you when you got no bucks It's a hard road - oh yeah God don't love you when you're outta luck - yeah God have mercy (hard road) God have mercy (hard road) Have mercy (hard road) on the also rans (hard road) God have mercy (hard road) God have mercy (hard road) on the also rans Yeah
