=== Quote from the song
To the sad, sad truth the dirty lowdown

The dirty lowdown is the truth. which you may not want to believe
(making it sad for you)..
The song is implying that someone is deluding themselves
and not facing the truth.

'Lowdown' is an word of American origin meaning 'information' and similar. A familiar phrase from American crime movies is: "Give me the lowdown on....." meaning 'Tell me about....."
I do not know that song.
