POOR POOR MISS PEGGY LEE

 

POOR MISS PEGGY LEE

SHE MISSED IT

SHE MISSED IT

SHE MISSED THE LOVE IN ME

 

BROUGHT TO THE WORLD TO CARE FOR

SHE GIVES AND SHE GIVES AS SHE GAVE

STRIPPING THE LIFE FROM HER MANTLE

PLACING HER LOVE IN A GRAVE

 

POOR POOR MISS PEGGY LEE

SHE GAVE AWAY HER LIFE

AND MISSED THE LOVE IN ME

 

POOR POOR MISS PEGGY LEE

SHE DRESSED THE WOUNDS OF SURRENDER

WHEN THEY COULD HAVE BEEN HEALED BY ME

 

SHE NOW SITS BY THE FIRE

WITH HER SON AT HER SIDE

BORN FROM A MOMENT OF LUST

WED TO A MAN SHE CAN’T TRUST

A LIFE GONE TO ASHES

A LOVE TURNED TO DUST

 

POOR POOR MISS PEGGY LEE

SHE MISSED IT

SHE MISSED IT

SHE MISSED THE LOVE IN ME
