She told me her story, hoped I would understand
 And I listened closely, as anybody can
 But there's a distant look that's in her eyes
 And as the nights grow longer, alone in bed she cries
My baby met a man on her first date
 He stole her heart an' sealed her fate
 And she thought she'd found a friend for life
 He wanted her but not to be a wife
* La la li, la la li
 A fool for love never wonders why
 La la li, la la li
 She hangs on in but it's just another goodbye
** (Now) every day is like another day
 She lets it all drift on away
 An' every man is like another man
 They come and go but she never can
And from sixteen to thirty-two
 She lost her loves and her good looks too
 It's so sad to see at first hand
 From a teenage beauty to a one night stand
* Repeat
 ** Repeat twice
** Repeat and fade
