From the very first day that you were born
To the very last time you waved and honked your horn
I had no chance at all to watch you grow
Up so sadly, beautiful
Up so sadly, beautiful

Baby needs a brand new pair of eyes
’Cause the ones you got now see only goodbyes
I had no chance at all to let you know
Oh so sadly, beautiful
Sadly, beautiful

Well, you got your mother's hair
And you got your mother's nose
But you got my soul
Sadly, beautiful

From the very last time you waved and honked your horn
To a face that turned away so pale and worn
I had no chance at all to let you know
You left me sadly, beautiful
You left me sadly, beautiful

Sadly, beautiful
So sadly, beautiful
