Now, friends, if you'll listen to my troubles
And bear with me all that you can
For I'm an uncomfortable, horrible, terrible, unconsolable, unlucky man
Was born in an unlucky climate
That's why I'm so sad and so 'lone
But what is the use of me trying,
When I wish that i'd never been born? But now,

REFRAIN: Don't you make light of my troubles
Bear with me all that you can
For I'm an uncomfortable, horrible, terrible, unconsolable, unlucky man

When I was about one and twenty
I sought me a partner in trade
And having the money a-plenty
I married me a lovely old maid
And when we got nicely to living
Enjoying the pride of our life
My partner stole all of my money
And then ran away with my wife. But now,

REFRAIN: Don't you make light of my troubles
Bear with me all that you can
For I'm an uncomfortable, horrible, terrible, unconsolable, unlucky man

I then started home to my Mama
I never will leave her again
But what is the use of me trying,
When I'm such an unlucky man?
And when I arrived at the cottage
A-thinking the old folks in bed
My Ma, she took me for a robber
And broke the broom over my head. But now,

Don't you make light of my troubles
Bear with me all that you can
For I'm an uncomfortable, horrible, terrible, unconsolable, unlucky man
