It seems so long ago, Nancy was alone
Looking at the Late Late show through a semi-precious stone
Well, in the House of Honesty her father was on trial
And in the House of Mystery, there was no one at all, there was no one at all.

It seems so long ago, none of us were strong
Nancy wore green stockings, she slept with everyone
She never said she'd wait for us although she was alone
I think she fell in love for us in 1961, in 1961.

It seems so long ago, Nancy was alone
A 45 beside her head, an open telephone
We told her she was beautiful, we told her she was free
But none of us would meet her in the House of Mystery, the House of Mystery.

And now you look around you and you see her everywhere
Many theyuse her body and many comb her hair
And in the hollow of the night when you are cold and numb
You hear her talking freely then, she's happy that you've come, she's happy that you've come.

It seems so long ago, Nancy was so alone
Looking at the Late Late show ..
