"Desperado" as written by and Steve Gregory....
Met her when she was seventeen at a rock'n'roll show
Told her I'd make it one day, next thing I know

Keep in touch, call sometime
You know I still love you
Even though we can't carry on
I'll still be thinking of you
From a someday star to a golden girl
At the end of the show
This is the only life I know
I'm a desperado

I know that one day I'll be a star
And I know I'll take to the lifestyle
Like a fish takes to water
Girl I know it's so hard to live like this
But after the penny punches comes the million dollar kiss

Keep in touch, call sometime
You know I still love you
Even though we can't carry on
I'll still be thinking of you
From a someday star to a golden girl
At the end of the show
This is the only life I know
I'm a desperado

Sung my song to kids who didn't care
Fell down so many times but as long as you were there
You'd give the strength to go on
Saying things'll be alright
But every night I'd hear you cry

Keep in touch, call sometime
You know I still love you
Even though we can't carry on
I'll still be thinking of you
From a someday star to a golden girl
At the end of the show
This is the only life I know
