Maybe she should just go home
Why should she just sit and watch telly on her own?
Right or wrong, she'll stand or fall
Writing's written on the wall

Well I bet she was beautiful
When she was 23

Kisses wasted on wrong cheeks
Minutes turning into weeks
Official status not quite known
Tired of trying to exist on her own

Well I bet she was beautiful
When she was 23

She looked like Audrey Hepburn
Sang like Doris Day
Legs like Marlene Dietrich
This old girl's the girl that got away

She made a name near and far
Playing nearly every single cabaret bar
She said she could of been a star
But she never got the chance to get that far

Well I bet she was beautiful
When she was 23

She looked like Audrey Hepburn
Sang like Doris Day
Legs like Marlene Dietrich
This old girl's the girl that got away
She looked like Audrey Hepburn
Sang like Doris Day
Legs like Marlene Dietrich
This old girl's the girl that got away

He thought they fell in love
He thought they shared a moment
He thought she was looking deep into his eyes
Right into his very soul
But she was just checking her hair in the reflection of his sunglasses

She looked like Audrey Hepburn
Sang like Doris Day
Legs like Marlene Dietrich
This old girl's the girl that got away
She looked like Audrey Hepburn
Sang like Doris Day
Legs like Marlene Dietrich
This old girl's the girl that got away
