"Poor Lady" lyrics

Poor Lady

I met a girl in LA
And she seemed alright to me
She said she'd give me loving
And she said it would be free
She told me she would call me
Or leave a message at the door
And left me wondering what I was in for

By the next time that I saw her
I had clean forgot her name
And without her fancy make-up
She just didn't look the same
So I totally ignored her
And she sadly turned away
And through sympathy
I told her she could stay

Oh, poor lady
Midnight baby
No one wants your love at all
Oh, poor lady
Midnight baby
Now you're heading for a fall

And you really think you're something
You know all the things to do
But, poor lady
Just a baby
There's a hundred more like you

Now for two weeks more
She was at my door
She would stay with me for days
As a lover she was frightening
In so many different ways

But when it came to conversation
She was totally absurd
Oh, she'd sit for hours
Never say a word

Oh, poor lady
Midnight baby
No one wants your love at all
Oh, poor lady
Midnight baby
Now you're heading for a fall

And you really think you're something
You know all the things to do
But, poor lady
Just a baby
There's a hundred more like you

Yes, she spends her days
In different ways
Still trying to be hip
And at night she'll find
She'll lose her mind
At a club along the strip

When her money goes
She always knows
She got something she can sell
It's the one thing
That she really can do well

Oh, poor lady
Midnight baby
No one wants your love at all
Oh, poor lady
Midnight baby
Now you're heading for a fall

And you really think you're something
But of all the things to do
Oh, poor lady
Just a baby
There's a hundred more like you
