well you walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
G                                  Em               C                G
your hat strategically dipped beneath one eye your scarf it was apricot
        Em      D        G     Em        C               G
you had one eye on the mirror and you watched yourself a lot
            D            Em                                                    G
and all the boys dreamed that they'd be your partner they'd be your partner yeah

well you had me several years ago when i was still quite naive
and you said that we made such a pretty pair and that you would never leave
but you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me
i had some dreams there were clouds in my coffee clouds in my coffee yeah

well i heard that you went off to Saratoga and your horse naturally won
and then you chartered a leer jet to Nova Scotia to see the total eclipse of the sun
yeah you're always where you should be and when you're not you're with 
some underworld spy or your best friend's boyfriend your best friend's boyfriend yeah
