We use a different second verse for this song and don't sing the third verse. Don't know where True-love got them. We sing the two songs as a set.
Our words to "The Wild Side of Life":

Verse 2, The glamour of the gay night life has lured you
          To the place where the wine and liquor flow
          Where you wait to be somebody's plaything
          And forget the only love you'll ever know.

We had a Gay male fan who used to listen to us in a pub who always asked for this song and its answer. He used to yell "yes! yes!" at the first line of this verse and then cheer me through the whole of the answer.
