LILY ALLEN


22 Lyrics

When she was 22 the future looked bright
But she's nearly 30 now and she's out every night
I see that look in her face, she's got that look in her eye
She's thinking how did I get here and wondering why

It's sad but it's true how society says her life is already over
There's nothing to do and there's nothing to say
'Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

She's got an alright job but it's not a career
Whenever she thinks about it, it brings her to tears
'Cause all she wants is a boyfriend, she gets one night stands
She's thinking how did I get here, I'm doing all that I can

It's sad but it's true how society says her life is already over
There's nothing to do and there's nothing to say
'Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

It's sad but it's true how society says her life is already over
There's nothing to do and there's nothing to say
'Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

This is truthful, it's a great song, that's for sure, but it's really sad. Anyway, I'm sure Lily Allen has no problems getting a dude. :)

The song is about the way society thinks a woman is sucessful only if she gets a good and rich husband or if she makes a wonderful career.

I feel this song is a true mirror of our society. With all my experience I really wonder how come Indian-Hindu's arranged marriage has amazing success rate. Makes you think, isn't it?
