Lyrics - Bad News T.F.

Bad News T.F.
(from 1979's Hi-Fi)

Hey, Iíve never been a good boy
I never even tried
I like to watch my days go by
Just let my spirit fly

Now, Iím never in one place too long
You know I love to ride
And in the morning Iíll be gone
With nobody by my side

Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast
Yeah, bad news travels fast
Donít you know Iím gone

Just a case of poverty
Why donít you understand?
That I donít need your charity
And no helping hand

I just want my freedom
The right to be a man
I may be down
But darling I can stand, yeah
I can stand it

Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast
Donít you know Iím gone
Iím gone

Goodbye!

I just want my freedom
Ooh, the right to be a man
I may be down
But darling I can stand, yeah
I can stand on my feet

Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast, yeah
Bad news travels fast
Donít you know Iím gone
Yeah!

Bad news travels fast
Donít you know Iím gone
Yeah!

Bad news
Bad news
Bad news
Bad news
Bad news travels fast
Now IímÖ
