Standing in the door of the pink flamingo
Crying in the rain.
It was a kind of so-so-love and I'm gonna make sure
It never happens again.
You and I - it had to be the standing toke of the year

You were a sleep-around
A lost-and-found and not for me - I fear
I tried to make it work
You in a cocktail-skirt
And me in a suit (well
It just wasn't me).
You're used to wearinq less and now your life's a mess -
So insecure you see.
I put up with all the scenes and this is one scene
That's going to be played my way.
Take your hands off me
I don't belong to you
You see.
Take a look at my face for the last time -
I never knew you - you never knew me.
Say hello
Goodbye - say hello
Wave goodbye.

Under the deep red light I can see the make-up fliding down.
Hey
Little girl
You will always make up

So take off that unbecoming frown
What about me?
Well
I'll find someone that's not going cheap in the sales

A nice little house-wife who'll give me a steady life
And won't keep going off the rails.

Take your hands off me
I don't belong to you
You see. . . .
We've been involved for quite a while now

And to keep you secret has been hell.
We're strangers meeting for the first time
O.k.?
Just smile and say "hello" -
Say hello
Then wave goodbye - say hello
Then wave goodbye

Say hello
Then wave goodbye - ...
