Hello my brother
Can you spare a moment?
So glad to see you
I've been down on my luck
Living in this alley these days
Always a meal or two in the trash
So how have you been keeping?
Good to hear about the wife and kids
I understand you don't want me visiting
Oh, you want to know about Mary?
She left me a couple years ago
My own fault, too much work
The job took away all my time
Mary was feeling a little rejected
So she found herself another lover
But the job decided to let me go
I kind of allowed myself to go to Hell
So I found myself without a job or home
Yeah I heard about little brother Billy
He joined the army and went off to fight
I miss him, I wish i went to the funeral
Oh, have you really got to go?
Yeah, I know it's been good to talk
My brother, you are always a busy man
Don't be a stranger now, visit soon
I am always living in ths alley, here
Always here, drinking my bottle of rye
