The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed

As a child she battled all
Especially kids at her school
Teachers too she was scared
Never a day was very fair

The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed

After school she thought it’d end
But fate had ideas it did send
For work was the same in many ways
Nothing had changed from her school days

The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed

Years passed she met a man
So excited they had a plan
But fate was never far
One day it pierced her heart

The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed

So the single life once again
Working for the government
A sheep like most she had become
The same old thing with the rising sun

The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed

Then one day she wakes up cold
Years have passed, she’s suddenly old
Missed so much staying still
Lack of risks, was brought to heel

The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed

She sheds a tear for what could’ve been
And all the things she should’ve seen
The children she hoped to have
The life stolen from fate so sad

The sadness of Sally Blue
Is a story told all too true
Of a woman who fought so brave
But in the end was betrayed
