  • Now won't you run and tell your boyfriend
    Tell him don't hold his breath for me
    I got some money I was saving
    Got some hearts that I'll be breaking
    Know someday they'll make a martyr out of me
    I know someday they'll make a martyr out of me

    She's so fine

    And I like sometimes to wave it high
    Up where everyone can see

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    I know I spend magic reel it out
    Try to hold a light to me

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    I like to watch the way the wind blows
    What does it know that I don't yet?
    Ooh, oh, look so pretty now
    You're just so sweet
    Let's see how far you can get
    See just how far you can get

    She's so fine

    And I like sometimes to wave it high
    Up where everyone can see

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    I know I spend magic reel it out
    Try to hold a light to me

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    And the dream's all gone
    And the dream's all gone
    No one said no, no one said
    Make something with
    what's in your head
    And the dream's all gone
    And the dream's all gone

    And I like sometimes to wave it high
    Up where everyone can see

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    I know I spend magic reel it out
    Try to hold a light to me

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    And I like sometimes to wave it high
    Up where everyone can see

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    I know I spend magic reel it out
    Try to hold a light to me

    I'm a lady
    Got my mind made up
    Got my mind made up

    (Got my mind made up, Got my mind made up)
    (Got my mind made up
    (Got my mind made up, Got my mind made up)

    (Got my mind made up, Got my mind made up)
    (Got my mind made up)
    (Got my mind made up, Got my mind made up)

    And I like sometimes to wave it high
    Up where everyone can see
