    I, I used to visit all these very gay places
    Those come what may places
    Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
    To get a feel of life
    From jazz and cocktails

    The girls I knew had sad and sullen grey faces
    With distant gay traces
    That used to be there
    You could see where they've been washed away
    By too many through the day
    Twelve o'clock tales

    Then suddenly you came along
    With a siren song
    It tempts me to madness
    I thought for a while that your poignant smile
    Was tinged with the sadness...
    Of a great love for me
    But, I was wrong
    I was wrong

    Life is lonely again,
    And only last week, everything seemed so sure.
    Now life is awful again,
    A trough full of hearts will probably be a bore, a bore

    A week I might go to Paris
    At least a bite of it
    All, all I want to do is laugh in spite of it

    I'll forget you, I will
    And yet you are still
    Burning inside my brain
    Romance is mush
    And it stifles those who strive
    Well I'll live a lush life in some small dive
    And I, I'll be alright with the rest
    All those whose lives are lonely too
