Marble halls and chandeliers
Vestibules and souvenirs
Vanity like a treasure chest
Silverware for a hundred guests

If you think it might leave you satisfied
If this is your idea of a perfect life
Take mine

Recognition and a paved driveway
Good manners and bad fruitcake
Socializing with the socialites
Wasting all my Saturday nights

All the precious things money can't buy
If you wanna know what these privileges are like
Take mine

I'm lookin' for highly understated, little downgraded
They don't make 'em like they used to
Rough around the edges, nothin' too impressive
Bona fide attributes
I'd rather hang around some sleepy little town
With a taste for the unrefined
So if you want the high life
Take mine

Groundskeeper and a maitre'd
Probably won't even ever miss me
Big parties and promenades
I never really liked to dance anyway
All these precious things don't satisfy
If you think happiness is what you're gonna find
Take mine
