Songtekst

She's a wonderful lady
And she's mine all mine
And there doesn't seem a way
That she won't come and lose my mind
It's too easy humming songs
To a girl in yellow dress
It's been a long time since the party
And the room is in a mess

The four kings of E.M.I
Are sitting stately on the floor
There are birds out on the sidewalk
And a valet at the door
He reminds me of a penguin
With few and plastered hair
There's talcum powder on the letter
And the birthday boy is there

Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do
See what I feel when I care?

Now they've darkened all the windows
And the seats are naugh-a-hyde
I've been waiting for an hour
I can't find a place to hide
The being known as Wonder Girl
Is speaking I believe
It's not easy trying to tell her
That I shortly have to leave

Why don't you be like me?
Why don't you stop and see?
Why don't you hate who I hate
Kill who I kill to be free

Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do
See what I feel when I care?
(She's a wonderful lady}
Why don't you be like me?
(And she's mine all mine)
Why don't you stop and see?
(And there doesn't seem a way)
Why don't you hate who I hate
(That she won't come and lose my mind)
Kill who I kill to be free
(It's too easy humming songs)
Why don't you cut your hair?
(To a girl in yellow dress)
Why don't you live up there?
(It's been a long time since the party)
Why don't you do what I do
(And the room is in a mess)
See what I feel when I care?
