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 feet of life, from jazz and cocktails

The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distand 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 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, again, I was wrong

Life is lonely again
And only last year everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful again
And 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
