Ziegfeld Girl

from by Sarah Lassez

lyrics

She had bee stung lips And dimpled knees.
She had dancing feet The desire to please. 
She had the glory of The American Girl.
She had her head in the clouds Golden Gibson curls.

She didn't have a ghost of a notion,
her feathered dreams weren’t meant to be.
She had everything to lose
and now she's singing the Ziegfeld blues.
   
Disillusioned dream girl, don't you know?
They only stay 'til the end of the show.
Disillusioned Dream girl, don’t you know?
Tuxedo's come and go.
They only stay, while you're spinning gold

She had the elite at her feet every night.
She had the diamond glow bathed in spotlight.
She had the lion's share of stage door johnnies. 
She had the brightest star of all the Follies.

She didn't have a ghost of a notion,
her feathered dreams weren’t meant to be.
She had everything to lose,
and now she's singing the Ziegfeld blues.

Disillusioned dream girl, don't you know?
They only stay 'til the end of the show.
Disillusioned Dream girl, don’t you know?
Tuxedo's come and go.
They only stay, while you're spinning gold.
