What's her name today?
What's her name today?
She could be anyone
I might have known you'd leave her crying
What's her name again?
You should be ashamed
How could you treat her so unspeakably?
Or did you think she was a different girl?
For as the radio played in the bedroom wall
What was that name you called her?
Was she the one who took away your pride and your reason?
Oh why did you decide that you'd punish any girl you meet to try and
Make that feeling go away?
What's her name today?
What's her name today?
Is her hair hanging down?
Or maybe it's fixed with a ribbon
Are her eyes still blue?
Should she trust you?
Because it's a lonely world
She wants to believe for a while in all the things you say
But as the radio played in the bedroom wall
What was that name you called her?
Isn't her smile reminiscent of someone else?
Well, is it or isn't it?
Oh why did you decide that you'd punish any girl you meet to try and
Make that feeling go away?
What's her name today?
Is she going to stay so you can ruin her?
And soon she'll be twisted in chiffon
Dress her like a doll
String her like a pearl
She hears peals of bells but it's hard to tell
Now that she's hung up like a chandelier
