Sophisticated Lady
They say into your early life
Romance came
And in this heart of yours
Burned a flame
A flame that flickered
One day and died away

Then, with disillusion
Deep in your eyes
You learned that fools in love
Soon grow wise
The years have changed you
Somehow, I see you now

Smoking, drinking
Never thinking
Of tomorrow, nonchalant
Diamonds shining
Dancing, dining
With some man in a restaurant
Is that all you really want?

No, sophisticated lady, I know
You miss the love you lost long ago
And when nobody is nigh
You cry


Music by:

Duke Ellington and Irving Mills
