"Good time girl"
Lyrics

Verse 1

Good-Time Girl,
Men only saw you as a
Good-Time Girl,
Now they ignore you when you
Talk about love,
Longing to change from being a
Play-Time Girl,
They only use you as a
Play-Time Girl,
They’ll never choose you when they’re
Looking for love,
Wanting to settle down.

Chorus 1

Why did you never see? Did you never try?
Did you ever look round the corner?
You were never born a

Verse 2

Good-Time Girl,
Why did you want to stay a
Good-Time Girl,
Why didn’t you move on when you
Knew that you should.
You knew that you could, when you were a
Back-Seat Girl,
Before your debut as a
Back-Street Girl,
But now you’ve gone too far to
Dream about love,
It’s too late to settle down.

Chorus 2

Pourquoi nous as-tu quitté pour l’obscurité
Les jours ont passé, ta jeunesse aussi
Le désèspoir d’être une … Fille de Joie

On te voit la nuit Rue St Denis.
Grelottant sous la pluie, Boulevard Clichy.
Jeunesse perdue le long des rues.
On ne savait pas tu étais perdue
