  • I was just thirty-four years old and I was still wandering in a haze
    I was wondering why everyone I met seemed like they were
    Lost in a maze

    I don't know why I thought I should have some kind of
    Divine right to the blues
    It's sympathy not tears people need when they're the
    Front page sad news.

    The incense burned away and the stench began to rise
    And lovers now estranged avoided catching each others' eyes

    And girls who lost their children cursed the men who fit the coil
    And men not fit for marriage took their refuge in the oil
    No one respects the flame quite like the fool who's badly burned
    From all this you'd imagine that there must be something learned

    Slit skirts, Jeanie never wears those slit skirts
    I don't ever wear no ripped shirts
    Can't pretend that growing older never hurts.

    Knee pants, Jeanie never wears no knee pants
    Have to be so drunk to try a new dance
    So afraid of every new romance

    Slit skirts, slit skirt
    Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts, slit skirt
    She wouldn't dare in those slit skirts, slit skirt
    Wouldn't be seen dead in no slit skirt

    Slit skirts, slit skirt
    Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts, slit skirt
    She wouldn't dare in those slit skirts, slit skirt
    Wouldn't be seen dead in no slit skirt

    Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance?
    Why can't we drink it up true heart romance
    Just need a brief new romance

    Let me tell you some more about myself, you know I'm sitting at home just now.
    The big events of the day are passed and the late TV shows have come around.
    I'm number one in the home team, but I still feel unfulfilled.
    A silent voice in her broken heart complaining that I'm unskilled.

    And I know that when she thinks of me, she thinks of me as him,
    But, unlike me, she don't work off her frustration in the gym.

    Recriminatio ns fester and the past can never change
    A woman's expectations run from both ends of the range

    Once she walked with untamed lovers' face between her legs
    Now he's cooled and stifl...
