Lord Germano presides over his kingdom at 28
Junked out cars in the drive
Take up all the parking space
And they’re going nowhere
Like everyone here
Had a couple good years
But you ended up here
And you notice that everyone’s just a bit crazy ‘round here

Here comes Johnny he’s drunk and he’ll tell you the names of his fists
And the names of the boys they have hurt and the girls he has kissed
Nearly played for the Leafs
Back when they were a team
Had a lot of good years
But he ended up here
And he’ll fight to the death over nothing
And he’ll buy you a beer

In the next room over there lives a girl with her bird
She’s in love with a parasite
He breaks her down with his words
All the schoolyard fights
He just wants to be liked
And it’s been a few years
But she’s still here
Beautiful Beverly why won’t you ever see
He steals the good from your heart
Beautiful Beverly why won’t you ever leave
Beautiful Beverly why won’t you ever leave
