Duke Ellington - Sophisticated Lady Lyrics

They say into your early life romance came
And in this heart of yours burned a flame

A flame that flickered one day and died away
Then, with disillusion deep in your eyes
You learned that fools in love soon grown wise

The years have changed you, somehow
I see you know

Smoking, drinking, never thinking of tomorrow, nonchalant
Diamonds shining, dancing, dining with some man in a restaurant

Is that all your really want
No, Sophisticated lady

I know, you miss the love you lost long ago
And when nobody is nigh you cry
