Broken Hearted Fairytale

This song is by Alex Harvey and appears on the album Roman Wall Blues (1969).

A black cat singin' the blues outside my window
The wind keeps howlin' right outside my door
A man with a piano sellin' a sad song
Another lonesome lover walks the floor

Little Red Riding Hood's dressed in blue
And Simple Simon's cryin' too
C'mon Miss Alice, hold my hand
I wanna go back to Wonderland

Broken hearted, broken hearted, broken hearted fairytale

There used to be a time when everything was easy
But now somebody puttin' the evil eye on me
A witch someplace ridin' on a broomstick
There's thunder in the sky and I can see
Sixteen men on a dead man's chest
Sittin' on a seesaw, doin' my best
A rub-a-dub, dub-a-dub, dub-a-dub-a-dub
Too may people are livin' in this house

Broken hearted, broken hearted, broken hearted fairytale

Empty pages fill of broken reasons
Tired years of twisted tongues to tell
And four and forty funny foolish fables
And there's a weeping willow that's weeping at the wishing well

And they're a-giving out sorrow to healthy Jack
Jill's gone home, he wants her back
Weary Willie can't keep still
Humpty Dumpty, play us a bill
Mr Hamlein acting the clown
Let them all bring te curtain down

Broken hearted, broken hearted, broken hearted fairytale
