    "Lush Life" Lyrics

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

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

    Then you came along with your siren of song
    To tempt me to madness!
    I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness
    Of a great love for me.

    Ah yes! I was wrong
    I was wrong.

    Life is lonely again,
    And only last year everything seemed so sure.
    Now life is awful again,
    A troughful of hearts could only be a bore.
    A week in Paris will ease the bite of it,
    All I care is to smile in spite of it.

    I'll forget you, I will
    While yet you are still burning inside my brain.
    Romance is mush,
    Stifling those who strive.
    I'll live a lush life in some small dive
    And there I'll be, while I rot
    With the rest of those whose lives are lonely, too
