She came from the country
To work in the city
She wasn't fantastic
But she was kind of pretty
She tried to be so evil
In the nicest possible way
She rationed herself to one man a day

But all the black stallions
Have their fields of gold grain
I said they'll never never never never put her life together again

She's been high with the wealthiest
Of places in town
She's been with the poorest
And when they were right down
Oh she slept with the stars
And out under the moon
I said she's danced and she's danced to every conceivable tune

But all the big doctors
And the big business brains
I said never never never never put her life together again

Now she don't close for lunch
And she don't close for tea
She don't get alarmed
By your hand on her knee
She doesn't feel a thing
And she doesn't feel proud
When there's rain on her mind and she's crying out loud

But the motorway bus
And the night express train
I said'll never never never never put her love together again

There's rain in her taxi
And there's rain in her eyes
There's rain on her footsteps
And there's rain on her lies
And there's rain on her windows
And I'll take a bet
I said the night on her mind is the rainiest yet

But all the red racing cars
And the beautiful young men
I said they'll never never never never put her life together again
I said they'll never never never never put her life together again
I said they'll never never never never put her life together again
