Rated 'X'

Album: Entertainer Of The Year - Loretta (1973)
  • Well if you've been a married woman
    And things didn't seem to work out
    Divorce is the key to bein' loose and free
    So you're gonna be talked about

    Everybody knows that you've loved once
    They think you'll love again
    You can't have a male friend
    When you're a has been of a woman you're rated X

    And if you're rated X
    You're some kind of gold
    Even men turning silver try to make
    But I think it's wrong
    To judge every picture if a cheap camera makes a mistake

    And when your best friend's husband says to you
    You've sure started lookin' good
    You should've known he would
    And he would if he could and he will if you're rated X

    Well nobody knows where you're goin'
    But they sure know where you've been
    All their thinkin' of is your experience of love
    Their minds eat up with sin

    The women all look at you like you're bad
    And the men all hope you are
    But if you go too far you're gonna wear the scar
    Of a woman rated X
    And if you're rated X
    You're some kind of gold
    Even men turning silver try to make
    But I think it's wrong
    To judge every picture if a cheap camera makes a mistake

    And when your best friend's husband says to you
    You've sure started lookin' good
    You should've known he would
    And he would if he could and he will if you're rated X
