Have you ever had a fancy lover?
Goin' crazy trying to keep up with her
It's like you're standing in the darkness
In the theater up the back, joining her ovation
When you wish you could distract her
And take her home

You had to try
Don't some great loves start
With someone aiming so high?

Have you ever had a fancy lover?
Thrown everything that you've got at her
She's the winter that's so bitter
You'll cut wood all summer long
She's two long years of thinking
Going into one old song
And that ain't good

You were doing fine
You knew your chances
And your place in the line

Fancy lovers, they need fancy lovers of their own
You'll camouflage your soul for them
Where do they get to meet their own kind of people
Is there a light on the steeple
That only fancy people see?

When you try and keep a fancy lover
You force her hand and then discover
She wouldn't look so perfect if it was just for you
Is there a guy behind your shoulder
That she may have noticed too?
You'll never know

You had to be in
You bet on hearts, boy
Even when you won't win

And then she'll take the field against you
Fighting above your weight and your height
100 ways to hit the canvas
1,000 days to beat the count

Fancy lovers, they need fancy lovers of their own
You'll camouflage your soul for them
Where do they get to meet their own kind of people
Is there a light on the steeple
That only fancy people see?
