​What a Way to Go

This song is by The Clarks and appears on the album The Clarks (1991).

I met a man out on a bridge pier
He said he's gonna jump to save his soul
I said what's the world done to make you mad man
He said sit down son now here's the dope
I can't find work 'cause I'm a blind man
I can't see but sometimes I can see the light
Now is my life a labor of love or is my life a love of labor
I still got a hollow feeling in my life

What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go

I met this girl her name escapes me
Said son I'd love you to be my man
She wrote her name out on a dollar
I spent that dollar on a shot of jim
Spent it on a shot of jim

I talked him down and then I walked off
I turned around and he was gone himself
A mile down the road it came upon me
It was me I talked off that ledge
It was me I talked off that ledge
It was me I talked off that ledge

What a way to go
What a way to go
What a way to go
