I'm A Loser
by UFO

Album: No Heavy Petting (1976)

  • Lyrics
  • This is a song about homelessness and desperation; vocalist and lyricist Phil Mogg is a Londoner born and bred, and his reference to Euston Station "cold as ice" where "all night specials" move you on, is obviously based on personal observation. This is one of the places in Central London frequented by runaways, winos, down-and-outs and all manner of people who have ended up on the streets for a plethora of reasons. >>
