[Chorus]
All the crystal chandeliers light up the paintings on your wall
The marble statuettes
Are standing stately, in the hall, but will the timely crowd,
that has you laughing loud help you, dry your tears
When the new wears off of your crystal chande-liers

I never did, fit in too well with folks you knew
And it's plain to see that the likes of me don't fit with you
So you traded me for the gaiety of the well to do
And you turned a way from the love I offered you

[Chorus]

I never did, fit in too well with folks you knew
And it's plain to see that the likes of me don't fit with you
So you traded me for the gaiety of the well to do
And you turned a way from the love I offered you

I see your picture in the news most every day
You're the chosen girl of the social world
So the stories say
But a paper smile only last awhile
Then it fades away
And the love we knew will come home to you some day

[Chorus]
