But oh, dear friends, you should have seen
The one that got away.

I do not like me anymore,
I cavil, quarrel, grumble, grouse
I ponder on the narrow house
I shudder at the thought of men
I'm due to fall in love again.

Lady, lady, should you meet
One whose ways are all discreet,
One who murmurs that his wife
Is the lodestar of his life,
One who keeps assuring you
That he never was untrue,
Never loved another one ...
Lady, lady, better run!
