"Ballad of the Sad Young Men" as written by and Thomas J. Wolf Jr. Frances Landsman....
Sing a song of sad young men
Glasses full of rye
All the news is bad again
Kiss your dreams goodbye
All the sad young men
Sitting in the bars
Knowing neon lights
Missing all the stars
Oh, the sad young men
Drifting through the town
Drinking of the night
And trying not to drown
Oh, the sad young men
Singing in the cold
Trying to forget
That they're growing old
All the sad young men
Choking on their youth
Let your gentle light
Guide them home again
Oh, the sad young men
