Poor Kid

(L.Wolfe Gilbert / Jesse Greer)

The Blue Jays. A Harry Hudson Band


She's a lonely little no-one
Because she trusted and believed in someone
That's all the wrong she did
Poor Kid, Poor Kid

Though the tie that binds is broken
The name of whose to blame remains unspoken
Beside of all he did
Poor Kid, Poor Kid

In other arms, she tried to forget his fond, embrace
And every night another one makes a bid, for his place

It's a game of just pretending
Because a wrong without a hope of mending
Within a heart she hears
Poor Kid, Poor Kid
