I nearly died I suicided softly I saw her shadow through the cafe window I watched you lean across the table I watched you whisper in her ear
And she is your holy Mary And I am so ordinary And you can use me if you want to I know you need me just like an old soft shoe
She looks like me but a bit prettier She's a skater and a ballet dancer I saw her on your motorcycle In the seat I thought was meant for me
And when your mother came to Boston you disappeared And then I saw you three together I guess she makes the best impression With her charming femininity...
Oh but I am the one you will call when alone And I am the one who will give when she's gone And so I give So I give
I tell myself that love is truly giving Somehow I justify this Hoping you will understand me Hoping you will love me back
And she is your holy Mary And I am so ordinary And she is your Queen Cleopatra And I'm just your morning after And she is your Star Spangled Banner And I am just Frere Jaque And you can lose me if you want to
