sorry charlie lyrics – handsome devil

sorry charlie, sorry

hair full of cowlicks out of control
his mother used vitalis super super hold
it’s true kids can be so cruel
loogies on his coat and charlie never knew

he was a full-time mama’s boy in second hand clothes
i heard a little school girl punched him in the nose
well mary just ran away
and charlie walked home alone another day

i just can’t believe it
these wounds are never healing
took him to a dark place
i seen the look on his mother’s face

sorry charlie, for all your pain and your misery
but your mother loved you
more than any other mother could do
sorry charlie, sorry

one cold day on the street where i lived
yard work and i was muddy like a pig
heard the laughter and turned for the scorn
charlie with a girl, he up and threw a coin

well i had comp*ssion and i had enough
so i taught that kid a lesson ’cause he wasn’t very tough
in a trash can he let out a cry
his mother took his side with fire in her eyes

i just can’t believe it
these wounds are never healing
took him to a dark place
i seen the look on his mother’s face

sorry charlie, for all your pain and your misery
but your mother loved you
more than any other mother could do, yeah
sorry charlie, sorry

sorry charlie, for all your pain and your misery
but your mother loved you
more than any other mother could do
more than any other mother could do
more than any other mother could do, yeah
sorry charlie, sorry
