Lyrics:

You'd think that everyone begins
as broken neophytes applying to get in,
but you know,
and I know
that some have got it worse, and then

there's those who seem exempt
from all the punishment
while love is giving you
a hard time.

You'd think we all could take a joke,
but when you see your little bird go up in smoke,
a good smack
on your back
does really nothing more than hurt and make you choke.

And that's the hell of it.
I guess I must admit
that love is giving you
a hard time.

And is there any doubt
they’ve got you singled out?
And love is giving you
a hard time.
