"Borderline" as written by Philip Parris Lynott and Brian David Robertson....
Midnight in the big city
At the bar drinking all on my own
Just thinking about that girl and me
How something's going wrong

Mister, tell me, what's my saving grace?
The back room boys
Were all telling me
I'm a borderline case

Back on the borderline one more time

Seven beers and still sober
It's time to change to something stronger
I cannot take this scene no longer
She could have told me it's all over

Back in my home town
The old place is still the same
But time can cast a spell over something
You can't go back again

Back on the borderline one more time

Mister, fill me another
Till I go crazy and it turn my mind around
Just pass that bottle one more time
And slowly drink it down

Jeanie can I tell you?
The shame of my disgrace
It's just love or rejection
For this borderline case

Back on the borderline one more time

I'm on my bended knees crawling
I'm begging you darling
