"Lonely Alcoholic" as written by and Michael Holbrook Penniman....
You're a lonely alcoholic
With a tendency to whine
Well, you speak it and you drink it
And bore us all the time

Say you drink out of your sorrow
For you've got no one to love
But tell me who could cuddle up
To a lonely alcoholic

You're a stressed out single mother
Who has clearly been harassed
Well, you can't predict the future
For you can't erase the past
'Cos your baby isn't going
Anywhere but up
So join the line and get the dole
For the stressed out single mother

I'm a mediocre writer
Who sings all the time
Writing songs about misfortunes
And other people's crimes
Well they say that I am
Doing my duty to the world
Oh you could say that is onerous,
I'm just craving to be heard

Ooh, don't leave me alone

Well who is there to listen to
The problems of our lives
You've got kids who just don't eat enough
And men with many wives
If we're all together screaming
Why can't we make a sound
'Cos the dirt on which we're stepping
Is the one in which we will be found

Ooh, baby, don't leave me alone

Well who is there to listen
To the problems of our lives
You've got kids who just don't eat enough
And men with many wives
If we're all together screaming
Why can't we make a sound
'Cos the dirt on which we're stepping
Is the one in which we will be found

Ooh, baby, don't leave me alone

    General CommentI love how Mika implements his way of singing his song. He is just so good and this song never failed me to keep that admiration for him. A must-heard!
