"Sophisticated Lady" as written by Irving Mills, Mitchell Parish and Duke Ellington....
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 and died

And 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
You're so 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 had so long ago
And when nobody is nigh I see you cry
