    Lyrics

    Sally met him in the war back in 1944
    He took her home to the states
    His buddies thought that she was great
    Subway Sally's 51
    Her man is gone her dreams are done
    She rides by night the Brooklyn train
    Sleeps by day to hide the pain

    Lonely women of the world were the happy girls
    Lonely heroes of the world seek the happy girls

    Nancy saw him on the street
    His shoes were shined, his suit was neat
    She couldn't see his broken mind
    Behind the mask of being kind
    He sleeps inside the iron bars
    Nancy's smile can't hide the scars
    Her daughter's grown, there's no one home
    She cries all night, she's all alone

    Lonely women of the world were the happy girls
    Lonely heroes of the world seek the happy girls

    To tell the truth there's no end in sight
    Mr. Lonely always calls at night
    Let's hold on tight until the morning light

    Terry's gonna meet him soon
    Today at school maybe noon
    I hope for her it turns out right
    I know she's got a date tonight
    Had my ups, had my downs
    Truth was lost but truth was found
    This I've learned the world still turns
    We all get bruised, we all get burned

    Lonely women of the world were the happy girls
    Lonely heroes of the world seek the happy girls

    Happy girls
    Happy girls
    Happy girls
    Happy, happy, happy
