The Lyrics

THE BANE OF MY LIFE

There were days when I felt very lonely
And felt so unsure of myself.
I stayed at home always feeling alone
And I feared being left on the shelf.
One day, something bad happened,
A thing I would regret.
A person I knew then came out the blue
It’s a day that I want to forget.

She’s the bane of my life,
And she changed my fortune.
How it came to this
I shall never know.
Life is so much worse,
And it won’t get better.
She’s a real pain, the bane of my life.

Though there were days I felt lonely
At least there was peace in the air.
I’d watch what I want on my tele,
The truth was I hadn’t a care.
But what came next was disaster,
‘Twas the day that she walked through the door.
I fell under her spell and she made life hell,
And I just couldn’t take any more

She’s the bane of my life,
And she changed my fortune.
How it came to this
I shall never know.
Life is so much worse,
And it won’t get better, no
She’s a real pain, the bane of my life.

Yes, she changed my fortune.
How it came to this
I shall never know.
Life is so much worse,
And it won’t get better, no
She’s a real pain, the bane of my life.
