Life upon the wicked stage ain't ever what a girl supposes Stage door Johny's outraging over you with gems and roses When you let a-fella hold your hand which means an extra beer or sandwich Everybody whispers, ?Ain't her life a world?
Though you're warned against the rule, way ruining your reputation When you played around the one night trade around the great big nation Wild old man who give you jewels and sables only live in Aesop's fables Life upon the wicked stage is nothin' for a girl
I admit it's fun to smear my face with paint Causing everyone to think I'm what I ain't And I'd like to play a Demi Monday roll with soul
Ask the hero, does he liked the way I lure When I play a Hasie or a Parramore Yet when once the gut feels down my life is pure and how I dread it
Life upon the wicked stage ain't ever what a girl supposes Stage door Johny's outraging over you with gems and roses If some gentleman we talk with reason, I would cancel all next season Life upon the wicked stage ain't nothin' for a girl
