sophisticated lady lyrics – ella fitzgerald

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 away

then with disillusion deep in your eyes
you learned that fools in love soon grow wise
the years have changed you, somehow, i see you now

smoking, drinking, never thinking of tomorrow, nonchalant
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

smoking, drinking, never thinking of tomorrow, nonchalant
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

/ ella fitzgerald lyrics
