WELCOME TO THE CLUB - 1977

You say that you're lonely? I see that you are
Why do you think I'm standing here at the bar
Where have you been?
Life's no Play Pen
Call it A BAR. Call it A PUB
WELCOME TO THE CLUB

You lost a brother. I lost a child
Everybody else's pain must be mild
I say, "That's naive."
I can't believe this.
You call it THE PITS. I call it The RUB
WELCOME TO THE CLUB

Pain has a way of making people forget
You know what I mean, so think about it
I say, "Think about it. And don't you forget."
I'll take A TAXI. You take THE SUB. . .but
MEET ME AT THE CLUB

People in trouble are like people in love
They're the only people that they're thinking of
That sounds like trouble but it don't sound like Love
I got THE BRUSH-OFF. You got THE SNUB.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB

I lost a mother. You lost a wife
Well, we're still alive so it's on with the life
Tomorrow may come
Take a holt of someone else
You call it PUSH. I call it SHOVE.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB

Time has a way of helping people forget
You know that it's true so don't you forget
I say, "Think about it and don't you forget."
Hand me THE TICKET. You keep THE STUB.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB
