SOPHISTICATED LADY Lyrics

Artist: Billie Holiday
Album: Compact Jazz - Billie Holiday

Duke Ellington / Mitchell Parish / Irving Mills

They say into your early life romance came
And this heart of yours burned a flame
A flame that flickered one day and died away
Then, with disilution 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 nobody is nigh you cry
