Confess to a priest and the press - you know they'll forget you tomorrow
Bow down to the kid with the crown
And take back the heart that he borrowed 
Get up all you three-legged pups, you are never as sad as your story
Be wise, if you came in disguise: are you in for the guts or the glory 

Oh, you never say what you mean to
And all the trouble I've been through
You said you love me but do you, sailor 

I guess, when there's nobody left
There's nothing I won't try believing
I'd drown before I let you down
If they cut you, then I will start bleeding
Sink or swim, it's a pain to give in
When your sweetheart is not on the level
Drink up from that bottomless cup
'cause the details have left with the devil

Oh, you never say what you mean to
And all the trouble I've been through
You said you love me but do you, sailor? 
Oh, and when you called me a liar
You threw me into the fire
I think you owe yourself to me, sailor
La, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
Oh I'm always part of the problem
The cause, but never the symptom
You said you love me but do you, sailor

Confess to a priest and the press - 
You know they'll forget you tomorrow
Bow down to the kid with the crown
Bow down to the kid with the crown
Bow down, bow down, bow down 

Oh I'm always part of the problem
The cause, but never the symptom
You said you love me but do you, sailor
