sophisticated lady lyrics – al jarreau

they say
into your early life romance came
and in this heart of yours burned a flame
a flame that flickered one day
and died,
with disilutions deep in your eyes
you learned that fools in love soon grow wise
the years have changed you some how
i see you now
smoking, drinking,
never thinking
of tomorrow
diamonds shining, dancing, dining
with some man
in a restaurant
is that all you really want?
no sophisticated lady i know
you miss the love you lost long ago
and when n*body is nigh
you cry
