Natural inner beauty I guess you could say she's just an unapproachable comedienne Haven't much faith in her talent She didn't work No comedienne has not been the clown She did her work, But her heart was quietly crying I guess she even felt guilty 'Bout even dying Sad Mabel Normand
So my friend is continuing On a destructive road His life passes before him like an Unfortunate circumstance He and his friend are at odds And he is not winning... Why does someone always have to win? He says it matters... Strange things do follow when you love someone So you put that someone in exile How about I call you Beloved Exile...
He called today He says, "Don't give up" I ask him, "What are you talking about?" I said things are not the same... Since you've been gone Rome burned down And still it's all the same So I moved away from the house that held nothing But waiting for messages And all through the day's seasons I went running with the sun And I pray every day for the answers In a still and almost silent night He began to hide his beauty And I learned to say the words Well, just whose side are you on, anyway? You change sides What does it matter? Still you change sides Every other day you just change sides
So, continue on your destructive road Oh, your life passes before me Like an unknown circumstance You and your friend are at odds And you are not winning Why does someone always have to win? And all those races that are run They cause patterns Strange things do follow when you love someone So you put that someone in exile And you say, "I'll write a book about it and call it Beloved Exile"
Well, her life was a gas Simply everything that happened Well, the old lady said, yes it was sad She fought a losing battle One day at a time She might even make it through tomorrow Maybe in another show, natural inner beauty I guess you could just say she was just unapproachable Baby, comedienne So beautiful, so beautiful She fought a losing battle She might even make it through tomorrow So beautiful, so beautiful Sad we won't know her

Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
