She lived a rough life
One no one would ever want
But she lived it the best she could
She lost her right leg
In a skiing accident
Her new one was made out of wood
She would limp and lag down the street
You could hear a click-clack
On the concrete
Oh, just to have two left feet

Let's pray for her
Heaven help the girl
Save her from a life of sin
Let's pray for her
Heaven help the girl
Lift her up from the hole that she's in

She hobbled along
It was no fun to watch
Sometimes she fell in a ditch
Guys called her names
Like lame-o and gimpy
And, "Look at that there one-legged bitch"
She used to be pretty
She used to be witty
Then she had to get down to the real nitty gritty

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didn't care
I carried my friends out for a good time
Buying bootleg liquor, champagne and wine
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody loves you when you're down

She didn't deserve this
But then who does
It was all the luck of the draw
Sometimes you get roses
Sometimes you get weeds
There is no hard and fast law
Why did she get a crummy deal
She used to brush after every meal
Now none of her wounds will ever heal
