I'm just a barfly wasting my time
Drinking corona with a squeeze of lime
I'll sing my song with a rhythm and rhyme
When I see a woman I feel past my prime

I've been a gambler for most of my life
I've been a player through trouble and strife
I've been a sinner with another man's wife
She was a clandestine lover and I paid the price

I play the joker or so I've been told
More than a thrill, I want someone to hold
There's no worse feeling than confessing you're old
When you're a loner out in the cold

I met a woman, we couldn't relate
The death of a friend would seal our fate
By the time I could face it I'd left it too late
She's now with another, she couldn't wait
