    Lyrics

    It was 1927
    Had the world at my feet
    A pretty girl on each arm
    My family was so proud of me

    I built a lot of buildings
    Tore half of 'em down
    One by one
    They all crumbled just like me
    But like a storm in a teacup
    Like a smile sent down from heaven
    Madge, I loved you then
    and I love you now

    We ate in the finest restaurants
    Had the wealthiest friends
    Most of them are gone now
    No one left to say, "I knew you when"

    It seems so long since I've remembered
    the girl I used to know
    She never saw any of my money
    But she watched it come and go

    Like a storm in a teacup
    like a smile sent down from heaven
    Madge I loved you then
    and I love you now

    They call this place "Sunnyside"
    But I ain't seen the sun
    in a long, long time
    And my hands don't seem too steady now
    But they're still holding onto you

    Madge, she's probably married now
    in a nice white house

    and me I just sit here in my room
    Quiet as a mouse

    But I got my TV turned up loud
    I'm not going to hear myself retreat
    If only I'd have kept her
    I'd have stayed on my feet

    Like a storm in a teacup
    like a smile sent down from heaven
    Madge I loved you then and I love you now...
