Well, the pressure's down, the boss ain't here

He gone North, he ain't around

They say that vanity got the best of him

But he sure left here after sundown

By the way, that's a cute hat

And that smile's so hard to resist

But what's a sweetheart like you doin' in a dump like this?

You know, I once knew a woman who looked like you

She wanted a whole man, not just a half

She used to call me sweet daddy when I was only a child

You kind of remind me of her when you laugh

In order to deal in this game, got to make the queen disappear

It's done with a flick of the wrist

What's a sweetheart like you doin' in a dump like this?

You know, a woman like you should be at home

That's where you belong

Watching out for someone who loves you true

Who would never do you wrong

Just how much abuse will you be able to take?

Well, there's no way to tell by that first kiss

What's a sweetheart like you doin' in a dump like this?

You know you can make a name for yourself

You can hear them tires squeal

You can be known as the most beautiful woman

Who ever crawled across cut glass to make a deal

You know, news of you has come down the line

Even before ya came in the door

They say in your father's house, there's many mansions

Each one of them got a fireproof floor

Snap out of it, baby, people are jealous of you

They smile to your face, but behind your back they hiss

What's a sweetheart like you doin' in a dump like this?

Got to be an important person to be in here, honey

Got to have done some evil deed

Got to have your own harem when you come in the door

Got to play your harp until your lips bleed

They say that patriotism is the last refuge

To which a scoundrel clings

Steal a little and they throw you in jail

Steal a lot and they make you king

There's only one step down from here, baby

It's called the land of permanent bliss

What's a sweetheart like you doin' in a dump like this?
