You started out that way
And keep your money boys

Turkish cigarettes
So you marry your daddy
With a different name

Sex and dying in high society

The one hiding inside the director's clothes
After banging away at you in the night
That one's just got to go
You could almost fall asleep

That's sex and dying in high society
Sex and dying in high society
Sex and dying in high society
And now you tell the maid
With a curling iron

You say it's good enough
You say your pain is better
Than any kind of love

Sex and dying in high society
