Amelita, come to see ya
And I finally now know the truth
Oh I found you, in your costume,
And the comb in your hair is the proof
Am I right, Amelita?
You just stand there with nothing to say
While they watch yo play the leader
So I’ve come here to take you away

Or they love you, and we lost you
When he promised to make you a star
Oh he fooled you, and it cost you
And the age on your face show the scars
Oh my good friend, I can see you
As a young girls with stars in her eyes
What a beauty, such a dancer,
Now you lay out your heart as a prize
Have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life

I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and never turn around
I remember you and Amelita
Have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life

Where have you gone my friend
Then light in your eyes is gone, gone, gone
I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and turn around and run
Amelita, have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life

I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and then you turn around and then run
Amelita, have you no ṗride?
You’ve got the rest of your life
Have you no pride?
Hey yeah
