So your baby left
You, for a carnival
yeah, a city of freaks and clowns
and you hope she’ll see you in the mirage
in the midst of the stampeding crowds

So She left you for the city
of the lights that always blind
but in her own way
she was already wearing shades
‘cause the world
was too bright for
her broken heart anyway

And she wasn’t for you, no
it was a long string of one night stand up
acts
when she telling you the truth
when she was making you laugh
and she always loved to do that

And it’s too bad that you’re in love
it’s too bad for you
to miss her
She won’t have anything to do with you anymore
And don’t you wish you’d kissed her more
Don’t you
Don’t you
Don’t you
And you won’t get to anymore
You’ll never adore her
a minute more

and that older woman you were with before
the woman whose name you called her once
well, she’d been right, you were her Father Figure
smelling of wine and smoke and whiskey and alcohol
and too many mistakes
but She told you so, even without the words she loved, She told you so

And it’s too bad that you’re in love
it’s too bad for you
to miss her
She won’t have anything to do with you anymore
And don’t you wish you’d kissed her more
Don’t you
Don’t you
Don’t you
And you won’t get to anymore
You’ll never adore her
a minute more

And sleepless nights towards the end
Must have really felt the moon river
was her only friend Oh,

Holly Holly Holly, Gollightly
and you’d work five more jobs for one more night, please
and you had crepes and you had pancakes
She loved breakfast best, but nothing else (except herself) more than you
and she was saving up for something from Tiffany’s
to inspire her to work more
and She could never be bought
and She didn’t want to be maintained
She told you so
but you kept mistaking her with the rats from your past

And she never had any intention of buying a cat
And she didn’t need you to tell her
that She was running from herself
she already knew that

And it’s too bad that you’re in love
it’s too bad for you
to miss her
She won’t have anything to do with you anymore
And don’t you wish you’d kissed her more
Don’t you
Don’t you
Don’t you
And you won’t get to anymore
You’ll never adore her
a minute more

So who's your Darling now?
yeah, who's your Darling now?

So find someone else to put a ring on

and find someone else to take ice skating in Central Park.
