Born To Lose
Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers
From the album L.A.M.F. (Like A Motherfucker), 1977
Influential 1970s New York punk act formed by Johnny Thunders (guitar, vocals and principal songwriter) and Jerry Nolan (drums) after they quit the New York Dolls, along with Richard Hell (vocals, bass) who had just left Television.
The Flying Lizards - Lovers and Other Strangers
"Men's club, take one. We had to be pretty tricky to get these men to break a tradition."
Lovers and other strangers
Challenge other dangers
Lovers and other dangers
Challenge other strangers
Living's such a misery
But do it all - die peacefully
Hey living's just for history
Write it down - it's poetry
Quarter to four knock on the door
The day begins forget some more
Looking for sin - tempting the law
Always get through it - wonder what for?
Really I try - hurting inside
You ask me what's wrong?
You want to know why?
I tell you the truth
And wish I had lied
"I don't know what to do"
