lyrics

Never Won

Both The Kinks and Sparks have had a great career
And never had the Album Of The Year
Cassavetes' films everyone should see
They were ignored by the Academy
In West Side Story's run
The Tony wasn't won
I can relate, I never won your heart

Albert Finney's been nominated for
Many Oscars he could not procure
The Honeymooners show
The Emmys just said, "No"
I can relate, I never won your heart
The Grammys snubbed Al Green
And never honored Queen
I can relate, I never won your heart

Quite a collection of losers, Quite a collection of losers

So it's pretty good company I keep
I guess we all cannot be Meryl Streep
William Trevor had 5 tries
Still no Booker Prize
I can relate, I never won your heart
I can relate, I never won your heart
And though I tried, I never won your heart
