  • Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    Beaten by the Queen of Hearts every time.
    Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    He's a loser but he still keeps on trying.

    Sit down, take a look at yourself
    Don't you want to be somebody?
    Someday somebody's gonna see inside
    You have to face up, you can't run and hide.

    Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    Beaten by the Queen of Hearts every time.
    Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    He's a loser but he still keeps on trying.

    Unlucky at love at least that's what they say
    He lost his head and he gambled his heart away
    He still keeps searching though there's nothing left
    Staked his heart and lost, now he has to pay the cost

    Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    Beaten by the Queen of Hearts every time.
    Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    He's a loser but he still keeps on trying.

    "It's okay." he smiles and says
    But this loneliness is driving him crazy.
    He don't show what goes on in his head
    But if you watch very close you'll see it all

    Sit down, take a look at yourself
    Don't you want to be somebody?
    Someday somebody's gonna see inside
    You have to face up, you can't run and hide.

    Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?
    Now tell me have you heard about the Lonesome Loser? Writer/s: DAVID JOHN BRIGGS
