I'm A Loser
by John T. Marck


I'm A Loser

Another by Lennon, this one is rather a self-pity song. Although on the surface the song tells of having lost a girl, but deeper inspection reveals that Lennon, who is wearing a mask to hide his flown, is actually saying he's not only a loser in love but also in life. Thanks to the influence of Bob Dylan, this was actually the first time Lennon wrote something whereby he could convey his innermost feelings. Six years later, Lennon said that this song describes his complete ambivalence, saying, "Part of me thinks I'm a loser, and a part of me thinks I'm God Almighty."

I'm a loser,

I'm a loser,

and I'm not what I appear to be

Of all the love I have won or have lost,

there is one love I should never have crossed

She was a girl in a million, my friend,

I should have known she would win in the end

I'm a loser,

and I lost someone who's near to me

I'm a loser,

and I'm not what I appear to be

Although I laugh and I act like a clown,

beneath this mask I am wearing a frown

My tears are falling like rain from the sky,

is it for her or myself that I cry

I'm a loser,

and I lost someone who's near to me

I'm a loser,

and I'm not what I appear to be

What have I done to deserve such a fate,

I realize I have left it too late

And so it's true,

pride comes before a fall,

I'm telling you so that you won't lose all

I'm a loser,

and I lost someone who's near to me

I'm a loser,

and I'm not what I appear to be
