A svelte young man, eighteen lovers to his name. Well if the rumours are true then eighteen lovers came crawling back again. I don't feel well. I've got this rattling in my chest. My doctor said that I should give it up because I'm clinically obsessed. I know you think you're in the movies. You're in the movies that don't wanna know me. Well I know all about fear and desire, I know all about lust et cetera. Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karenina, Arlene Dahl. Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karenina, Arlene Dahl. I just want to be a sweetheart. I just want to be a sweetheart. I just want to be a sweetheart. A sweet young girl, dressed to the nines in Cacharel. Oh, under the weather my heels click together, and following her is hell. I feel quite ill. I've got this rattling in my chest. My doctor said that I should give it up, I need to get some rest. Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karenina, Arlene Dahl. Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karenina, Arlene Dahl. I just want to be a sweetheart. I just want to be a sweetheart. I just want to be a sweethea
rt. So never, neve, never try to tell me it's a pleasure being alone. All I have here with me are the records and the books that I own. Nag, nag, nag. Nag, nag, nag. Nag, nag, nag. Nag, nag, nag. Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karenina, Arlene Dahl. Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karenina, Arlene Dahl. I just want to be a sweetheart. I just want to be a sweetheart. I just want to be a sweetheart
