I lay my head on the railroad tracks,
Waitin’ for the double E.
The railroad don’t run no more.
Poor poor pitiful me. [chorus]
Poor poor pitiful me, poor poor pitiful me.
These young girls won’t let me be,
Lord have mercy on me!
Woe is me!

Well, I met a girl, West Hollywood,
Well, I ain’t naming names.
But she really worked me over good,
She was just like Jesse James.
She really worked me over good,
She was a credit to her gender.
She put me through some changes, boy,
Sort of like a Waring blender. [chorus]

I met a girl at the Rainbow Bar,
She asked me if I’d beat her.
She took me back to the Hyatt House,
I don’t want to talk about it. [chorus]
— Warren Zevon, “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”
