Desperado why don’t you come to your senses,
You been out ridin’ fences,
For so long now,
Oh you’re a hard one,
I know that you got your reasons,
These things that are pleasin’ you,
Can hurt you somehow.
Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds,
Boy she’ll beat you if she’s able,
The queen of hearts is always your best bet,
Now it seems to me some fine things,
Have been laid upon your table,
But you always want the ones that you can’t get.
Desperado Oh you ain’t gettin’ no younger,
Your pain and your hunger,
They’re drivin’ you home,
And freedom oh,freedom,
Well that’s justsome people talkin’,
Your prison is walkin’,
Through this world all alone.
Don’t your feet get get cold,
In the wintertime,
The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine,
It’s hard to tell the night time from the day,
You’re losin’ all your highs and lows,
Ain’t it funny how the feelin’ goes away.
Why don’t you come to your senses,
Come down from the fences,
Open the gate,
It may be rainin’,
But there’s rainbow above you,
You beter let somebody love you,
(Let somebody you),
You better let somebody love you,
Before it’s too late.
