Beaten

I'll never see the time
The way that you do
Through a golden watch that shines
A pretty penny or two.


I'll never have the clothes
The ones that you have.
Or the money to repair my nose
The way that you have

You've beaten me.
I surrender, take your prize
Because you've beaten me.
I've come to realize.

I'll never have the women
Though you're undeservable
In a sporty car you're sittin'
It's a red convertible.

I'll never see strange lands
Like the ones you've seen.
And I'll never be in a Rock-n-Roll band
They way that you've been.

You've beaten me.
I surrender, take your prize
Because you've beaten me.
I finally realize.

I'll never have the power
The way that you do
In the top of your ivory tower
You control your puppet zoo.

I'll never have the charm
They listen when you talk
You don't mean no harm
But you crush me when you walk.

You've beaten me.
I surrender, take your prize
Because you've beaten me.
I've come to realize.

You've beaten me.
