​Sad Mona Lisa

This song is by Television Personalities and appears on the album Privilege (1989).

Sad Mona Lisa
The saddest girl I've ever known
Sad Mona Lisa
She lives in a world of her own
Sad Mona Lisa
No-one's gonna break your heart
Sad Mona Lisa
You were different from the start

She likes to go shopping on Saturdays
Especially to Kensington Market
For acid house records her mother hates
And posters of Morten Harket

And she walks around the shops alone
And spends her unemployment money
On lipstick and make-up she never wears
And magazines like Honey

Sad Mona Lisa
The saddest girl I've ever known
Sad Mona Lisa
She lives in a world of her own
Sad Mona Lisa


No-one's gonna break your heart
Sad Mona Lisa
You were different from the start

She dreams of her first boyfriend
Love letters he will send
Tender moments in his arms
Kisses that never end

Tina her sister laughs at her
Which is something of a contradiction
From an unmarried mum from the council slums
With a heroin addiction

Sad Mona Lisa
The saddest girl I've ever known
Sad Mona Lisa
She lives in a world of her own
Sad Mona Lisa
No-one's gonna break your heart
Sad Mona Lisa
You were different from the start
Well no-one's gonna break your heart
