I used to visit all the very gay places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
From jazz and cocktails.
The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
That used to be there you could see where they'd been washed away
Twelve o'clock tales.
Then you came along with your siren of song
I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness


And only last year everything seemed so sure.
A thoughtful of hearts could only be a bore.
A week in Paris will ease the bite of it,

While yet you are still burning inside my brain.
Romance is mush,
I'll live a lush life in some small dive
And there I'll be, while I rot
