Lush Life Lyrics

I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come what may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life from jazz and cocktails

The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distinct gay traces that used to be there
You could see where they'd been washed away
By too many through the day, twelve o'clock tales

Then you came along with your siren song to tempt me to madness
I thought for a while that your poignant smile
Was tinged with the sadness of a great love for me
Ah, yes, I was wrong, again I was wrong

Life is lonely again and only last year
Everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful, again a trough full of hearts
Could only be a bore

A week in Paris will ease the bite of it
All I care is to smile in spite of it
I'll forget you, I will
While yet you are still burning inside my brain

Romance is mush, stifling those who strive
I'll live a lush life in some small dive
And there I'll be where I'll rot with the rest
Of those whose lives are lonely too
