It won't work poor boy
|won’t = will not
INTRANSITIVE to succeed
If this plan doesn’t work, we’ll think of something else.
The strategy seems to be working.
Don't you try again
Fate took over your love
assume control of something 接管
And you can't win
You can sing the blues
|sing the blues
*Literally, to sing blues music or in that style.
There was this old man singing the blues at the bar last night—it was a really moving bit of music.唱藍調
*By extension, to complain, whine, or express grief, especially as a means of gaining sympathy from others.
Many people will sing the blues over trivial inconveniences, while millions of others silently suffer real hardships every day.自怨自嘆
All to yourself
But while you’re singing
She's with someone else, poor boy.
While you’re singing
She's with someone else.
Love is strange
But, poor boy, it has to be
In more than a hundred ways
You’re just like me
You and I can try to face the foe
But we both know they won't be back no more, poor boy
We both know, they won't be back
Poor boy, I'm sorry, you're so blue
*of a colour intermediate between green and violet, as of the sky or sea on a sunny day. 藍色
(of a person or mood) melancholy, sad, or depressed. 鬱悶 沮喪
"he's feeling blue"
But don't forget
There's more than one of you
Poor boy I'm sorry you're so sad
But time will heal
The pain won't be so bad, poor boy
Time will heal
The pain won't be so bad
Let's forget poor boy
And let's ride alright

New love may come to call

If someone comes to call, they respond to an order or summons directly.召之即來
After all, poor boy
Poor boy, we'll be rich men after all
