And She Sang (The Puppini Sisters)

There was a girl who thought the world Was filled with gold and pearls She smiled with the bright eyes Of those who trust in life She had been taught she should believe In all that's good and fair And and the end of each day She sat contented in her chair And she sang; lalalalalala He was the type who thought he had a right To everything he liked He had an easy air, was confident And pleasing to the eye They met by chance at a caf© He thought that she looked fine And as they kissed she felt the bliss Of love for the first time And she sang; lalalalalala She gave herself without reserve, With eagerness and joy He took her with indifference Then cast her off like a broken toy There was a girl who thought the world Was filled with gold and pearls She smiled with hazy eyes And lips that barely curled She had been taught she should believe And so her life went on And through the years she still could hear The echo of her song Lalalalalala
