    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 distingue 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 song
    To tempt me to madness
    I thought for awhile that your poignant smile
    Was tinged with the sadness
    Of a great love for me
    Ah yes, I was wrong
    Again, I was wrong

    Life is lonely again
    And only last year
    Everything seemed so sure
    Now life is awful again
    A trough full of hearts could only be a bore

    A week in Paris could 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
    So 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
