She says 'The first boy that I ever kissed
Got cold feet and won't be missed,
He was too young to know how to stay.
The second I thought was the one
But now that all is said and done
I should have left the first goddamn day.

Where have all the good men gone?
They must be hiding from me.
Once upon a time they were a sight to see;
Where have all, oh where've all the good men gone.

Ain't the third time supposed to be the charm?
I had many causes for alarm
But was too in love to notice something's wrong.
The fourth I found in someone's embrace
Can't remember the voice, can't remember the face,
Just that he was married all along.

Where have all the good men gone?
Is it luck or am I blind:
Why are the bastards always the ones I find?
Where have all, oh where've all the good men gone.

I'm not looking for a knight in shining armor,
Just a man who knows what his heart is for;
When the times are good, he would keep me warm,
At the first sign of trouble, he ain't rushing out the door.
Faith, oh faith, could you be kind and send
A gentleman and fighter, lover and a friend.
Yes, the future is uncertain, but I'm lonely as hell
And somewhere there's a good man that is lonely as well, said:

Where have all the good men gone?
I'm getting pretty hopeless here;
When is a pair of kind hands going to appear.
Where have all, oh where've all the good men gone.'
