Here are the Lyrics

Said your all mouth and no brains
all rock stars go to heaven
you said you’ll be dead at 27 seven
when we drunk in an English tavern
the owner poured you the Bourbon
and you drunk your self so rotten
so he got so rich he bought a Bentley
and moved himself to Devon

You started dirty dancing
and you bar tended a dozen
I took you to the clinic
to get you clean but you couldn’t
said in two days your 27 and your destiny was coming
so Your papa passed so sudden
and left you with lil somthin

You blew that money on a mountain of drugs
and staged your self a bed in
a month later when I popped in
your still high but the winter set in
I bought you a coffee and a muffin
and you quoted me some Lenin
I wished i was that clever
but that’s what kept me coming
your friendship did mean somethin
but you left me for nothing
when I left, you befriended a rope
and I saw you both were hanging
