Seen quite a bit in my twenty-three years,

And I've spat a few tears.

E           D#m
Spat on and shat on
                C#m           C#m D#m
Tell me when my light's on

B            E
Rambling and gambling
    C#m         F#
Just hoping for more
          B          E
I've been losing and boozing
     C#m              F#
But I don't know what for

     E       D#m
Will anybody help?

Tell me when my light's on
