  • I count the cases piled up high
    For the 1:15.
    For platform and for passerby
    It's the same routine.
    I'm ranting while I’m raving,
    There's nothing here worth saving.

    Tell me now, what more do you need?
    Take me to Walter Reed tonight.
    Baby I've lost the will for fighting
    Over everything.
    Well there's a few things I gotta say
    And make no mistake, I'm mad…
    'Cause every good thing I've had
    Abandoned me.

    All I want to do is hide.
    It's graduation day
    And everything I learned inside
    Didn't seem to pay.
    I've had my fill of palm trees
    And lighting up Grauman's Chinese.

    Tell me now, what more do you need?
    Take me to Walter Reed tonight.
    Baby I've lost the will for fighting
    Over everything
    And there's a few things I gotta say.
    Make no mistake, I'm mad.
    'Cause every good thing I had
    Abandoned me.

    A sad and lonesome me.

    I'm the walking wounded
    And I'd say it to your face
    But I can't find my place.

    So tell me now, what more do you need?
    Take me to Walter Reed tonight.
    Baby I've lost the will for fighting
    Over everything
    And there's a few things I gotta say.
    Make no mistake, I'm mad
    'Cause every good thing I had
    Abandoned me.

    A sad and lonesome me.
    A sad and lonesome me.
    A sad and lonesome me. Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
