You've got to Learn (How to Lose)

You've got to learn how to lose.
There's a wrong and a right way to do it.
You've got to learn how to break the rules.
There's a wrong and a right way to do it.

You've been running like a dog in the rain,
Chewing your tail, acting innane
but though you've been lost for many a year
no magical draught is gonna ease your fear.

Your lover's been waling on leopard's feet,
sneaking around to find a place to meet
but though you know you don't really care
'cause another girl has you dancing on air.

While you were lovin' that dreamy eyed girl
your brain kept on spinnin' all in a whirl.
Now you got cold feet, a big empty bed
but no rain is falling onto your head.

My momma taught me when to run.
My momma showed me how to shoot my gun.
My momma told me how to play the game
but I'll never forgive my momma
for giving me that awful name.
