"Mr. Misfortune" as written by and James Joseph Smith....
Come along mate, (Come along mate)
You've gotta cheer up, (You've gotta cheer up)
I know you're down in your luck, but,
Don't be down in the dumps.
Don't be down in the dumps. Yeah, don't be down in the dumps.
I know you're down in your luck, but,
You've got to listen...

'Cause real lads, (real lads)
They don't sink, (they don't sink)
They brush it off,
They hold up,
They take it on the chin.
And nice girls, (nice girls)
Won't leave you out of pocket.
Won't make you buy her mates their drinks then leave you there to sock it. (?)

And ohhh, ohhh, ohhh-oh.
He's only gone and done it, she's dumped him again!
And ohhh, ohhh, ohhh-oh!
He's only gone and done it again!

So tell it to me straight, now, are you one of those guys
Who always needs the hassle and a stress in their lives?
And switches on and off from girlie to girl,
Ms. Fortune always turning your world?

Mister Misfortune,
We need to sort you,
Check!

And all our friends all agree,
That since the age of fourteen,
You've paid to lose and took the blues. You need a slap on the cheek.
'Cause now it's gone too far.
You need a swift reminder.
So lick your straightener scars,
And dry your eyeliner!

And ohhh, ohhh, ohhh-oh.
He's only gone and done it, she's dumped him again!
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh-oh!
He's only gone and done it again!

So tell it to me straight, now, are you one of those guys
Who always needs the hassle and a stress in their lives?
And switches on and off from girlie to girl,
Ms. Fortune always turning your world?

Mister Misfortune,
Mister Misfortune,
We need to sort you,
Mister Misfortune.

Don't be down in the dumps.
Don't be down in the dumps.
I know you're down in your luck. but...
Don't be down in the dumps.
Don't be down in the dumps.
I know you're down in your luck. but,
You've got to listen up.

You've got to listen up.

He's only gone and done it again!
So tell it to me straight, now, are you one of those guys
Who always needs the hassle and the stress in their lives?
And switches on and off from girlie to girl,
Ms. Fortune always turning your world.

So tell it to me straight, now, are you one of those guys
Who always needs the hassle and the stress in their lives?
And switches on and off from girlie to girl,
Ms. Fortune always turning your world.

Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh-oh.
And ohhh, ohhh, ohhh-oh!
You've got to listen up.
