Any way the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me,
To me

Put a gun against his head,

Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead,

Didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine

Body’s aching all the time,

Goodbye everybody – I’ve got to go

I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all
