lyrics

When you’re lonely
And there’s nothing but vices to comfort you
Ice cream, whiskey and Chinese food
Life moves slow
You feel like the only
Child in a litter of thirty-five
Who won’t fight for nipples to stay alive
And can’t grow

You feel like the runt of the litter
Stoic and silent but bitter
meekest of all of God’s critters
That’s the way lonely life goes

When it rains it pours
When it’s dry it’s drought
A famine of contact a feast of doubt
Would somebody please come and sort this out
So I’ll know
These pimps and whores aren’t impressing me
I need someone normal undressing me
Someone who’s tabby not cheshirey
With a soul

So bring on the runts of the litter
Someone who makes my heart pitter pat
But I don’t see none of those kitter cats
That’s the way lonely life goes

When you’re lonely.
The people don’t seem worth talking to
You’re the only
Person in this world this could happen to


So I guess I’ll stay lonely
Flee to the hills and raise cats or sheep
Watch TV and read till I’m fast asleep
In my clothes

And no one will know me.
A reclusive hermit until I die
Uttering nothing except a sigh
‘Cause I chose

To live as the runt of the litter
Stoic and silent but bitter
Joyless as birds with no twitter
That’s the way lonely life goes

We are the runts of the litter
Stoic and silent but bitter
The meekest of all of gods critters
That’s the way lonely life goes

That’s the way lonely life goes
