(Mick Jagger)

You used to be my party doll
But now you say the party's over
You used to love to honky tonk
But now the honky tonkin's over
Now my life is a bitter thing my sweet
Now life is a mystery to me
Love's pain I ain't buying
Love's strange but I'll keep trying
You used to be my party doll
But now you to live in clover
You used to be my number one
But now those salad days are over
Times change but the fascination stays
Love wins but the passion just fades
I'll drink to those dancin' days
I'll drink to your crazy ways
Through a whisky haze
Face the music, face the truth
Chases that fleet sweet bird of youth
Grow up sweetly, grow up strong
Hear the heartbeat in my song
Now my life is a bitter thing my sweet
Now life is a mystery to me
Love's pain I ain't buying
Love's strange but I'll keep trying
You used to be my party doll
But now you say the party's over
You used to love to honky tonk
But now the honky tonkin's over
You used to be my number one
But now you've vanished in the ozone
