Always been in trouble
Nearly all of my life
Always been in trouble
Struggle, scorn and strife

Down on the bottom
Down to the last drop in the cup
Down on the bottom
With no place to go now but up

Go find me my bluebird
Flying so high up above
Go find me my bluebird
Find me somebody to love

Down on the bottom
Down to the last drop in the cup
Down on the bottom
No place to go now but up

Go find me my bluebird before it turns and disappears
See the sky is painted before it rains down like tears

The hour of eleven
The little finger of fate
Pointing to heaven before it's too late

Down on the bottom
Down to the last drop in the cup
Down on the bottom

No place to go now but up
