Walter Reed (from the album "Mr. Hollywood Jr., 1947")

Count the cases pilled up high for the 1:15.
For platform and for passerby
it's the same routine:
I'm ranting while I'm raving;
there's nothing here worth saving.

Tell me now, what more do you need?
Take me to Walter Reed tonight.
Baby, I've lost the will for fighting over everything
Well, there's a few things I gotta say and
make no mistake, I'm mad...
because every good thing I've had abandoned me.

All I want to do is hide; it's graduation day
and everything I learned inside didn't seem to pay.
I've had my fill of palm trees
and lighting up Grauman's Chinese...

Tell me now, what more do you need?
Take me to Walter Reed tonight
Baby, I've lost the will for fighting over everything
and there's a few things I gotta say
make no mistake, I'm mad
'cause every good thing I had abandoned me
...a sad and lonesome me.

I'm the walking wounded and I'd say it to your face
but I can't find my place
so tell me now, what more do you need?
Take me to Walter Reed tonight.
Baby, I've lost the will for fighting over everything
Well, there's a few things I gotta say
and make no mistake, I'm mad
'cause every good thing I've had
abandoned me, a sad and lonesome me
