Lady Grey

  • Lady Grey, you tell a smile
    What is your secret, what's your lie?
    You lived a long, hard life
    Your memory may fade, but you're still wise
    I wonder where you've been
    What you've accomplished, what you've seen
    In such a long, hard life
    Did you ever dance, were you someone's wife?

    Take me, take me away
    Way back to the days when you were
    Crazy, crazy for living
    Oh, sweet twenty-nine
    And you looked fine
    And you looked fine

    Lady Grey, dressed up so nice
    Where do you go when you close your eyes?
    Do you hear the words I say
    And can you remember yesterday?
    What do you comprehend?
    Can you even feel me in your hand?
    Lady Grey, with your knockout smile
    Hoping you feel it was worth the while

    Take me, take me away
    Way back to the days when you were
    Crazy, crazy for living
    Oh, sweet twenty-nine
    And you looked fine
    You looked fine

    Lady Grey, no doubt that time
    Has withered your hands, but still your smile
    Is as sparkling as way back when
    You broke the hearts of all young men
    Lady Grey, when I see you now
    Sick in your bed, but still you smile
    When you hear the music play
    Wonder how it would be if you could

    Take me, take me away
    Way back to the days when you were
    Crazy, crazy for living
    Oh, sweet twenty-nine
    And you looked fine

    Take me, take me away
    Way back to the days when you were
    Crazy, crazy for living
    Oh, sweet twenty-nine
    And you looked fine
    You looked fine

    You looked fine (yeah, yeah)
    My Lady Grey
