I saw a man about 50 or so, he looked lonely but his eyes were bright
 DCadd9/D
He was walking up Holland Park Road and I stopped him to ask for a light
 DCadd9/D
He practically froze when I spoke but eased when he saw my cigarette
 DCadd9/D
Then I saw as he lit up my smoke beneath his coat he was naked and wet
(chorus)
 DmD7/C
With eyes full of shame for he knew that I knew
 G/BG/C
He slumped to the wall with a moan
 CGCG
I said, "I know there's no name for what you go through
 Asus4A
But how     how can you do it alone?"

I crossed the street to the local news store
And I flicked through some cheap magazines
Beside me some school kid I saw
Stuffed some girlie mags down into his jeans
The shop girl was watching amazed, she asked me to call for the police.
She screamed at his blushing young face and he escaped into the streets
(repeat chorus)
With eyes full of shame for he knew that I knew
He slumped to the wall with a moan
I said, "I know there's no name for what you go through
But how, how can you do it
 Eb
alone?"
 BbFC
Ooh, how can you do it alone?  
 EbBbCG
I need your help, so I can do it by myself. 
 EbBbCG
Do it alone, don't have to breathe down the phone 
 EbCDm7G
ain't got a clue 'bout the things that you do
 Asus4A
But how can you do it alone?

How can you do it? How can you do it?
Back at the flat my girl sat in the shower
And wasn't too keen on me sharing
She came out well after an hour and by that time I was past caring
Some women it seems have the knack
Of attaining the stars in their dreams
They simply relax and lay back while people like us scratch our jeans
(repeat chorus)
With eyes full of shame and I know it must show
I slump and I fall and I groan
Will somebody explain what I need to know
How... How can you do it alone?
How can you do it? Do it alone...
How can you do it without any help?
How can you do it all by yourself?
