Lyrics

intro
If i die a lonely death
I'm sure it's from the cigarettes
I smoked each day after you left me
standing all alone
Alone in my Park Avenue apartment that smelled fresh and new
the extra set of keys from you
are going to the maid
the maid has been my only friend
she's always there to apprehend
the dust and grime that settles in
around the crystal vase
the crystal vase, a wedding gift
that through the years has made the shift
what once helds flowers
now holds ash
from my two packs a day

Oo, baby she walks with a thorn in her side
Them big sunglasses on her eyes
All the uptown girls say:
"Hi... old woman"
"I can't take another day of this" she says
"All I wanted was a drink and kiss
But I guess I'll just to call on my bank 'cause it's Swiss"

She never knew no better than to follow her nose
I ask for your forgiveness 'cause I'm part of the show
And now she's gone and all she's left with
is a house full of clothes
Sometimes Madam
It's OK to cry

If I die a lonely death
I'm sure it's from the cigarettes
I smoked each day after you left me
standing all alone
Alone in my Park Avenue apartment that smelled fresh and new
the extra set of keys from you
are going to the maid

We'll she's probably just a chip off the block
You know like, coffee from a coffee pot
Well, at least she can get away for a while
Get some sun on that yacht

She never knew no better than to follow her nose
I ask for your forgiveness 'cause I'm part of the show
And now all she's gone and all she's left with is
a house full of clothes
Sometimes Madam
It's OK to cry
If i die a lonely death
I'm sure it's from the cigarettes
I smoked each day after you left me
standing all alone
Alone in my Park Avenue apartment that smelled fresh and new
the extra set of keys from you
are going to the maid
the maid has been my only friend
she's always there to apprehend
the dust and grime that settles in
around the crystal vase
the crystal vase, a wedding gift
that through the years has made the shift
what once helds flowers
now holds ash
from my two packs a day
