Hey Marianne,

I don´t understand

why you break down so easy,

why you don’t get tired of me.

 

I´m drinking, drinking, drinking alcohol and when I´m done I’ll stumble down the hall to you and start to cry.

You hold my head in your ungentle hands and tell me, I´m the only man for you,

well that’s a lie but hey.

 

Hey Marianne,

I don’t understand

why you break down so easy,

why you don’t get tired of me so.

 

I hide my head underneath the covers and when you go to work. I’ll dream of other lovers you’re sweet,

but much too shy and you tell a perfect stranger all about your troubles and when you’ve finished all he can do is shuffle his feet and sigh.

 

Hey Marianne,

I don´t understand

why you break down so easy,

why you don’t get tired of me.
