Is she really wide awake
Is she conscious
Of her beautiful mistake
Is she conscious
As she moves among the crowd

She's got the world upon a piece of string
She's got the world upon a piece of string, it's so
He was ugly and she was beautiful
He was ugly and she was so....

Is she conscious
Is she asleep or just afloat
Is she conscious
Of the letter that she wrote
Is she conscious
Of the muzak in her ears

The Queen of Sheba could have shined her shoes
The Queen of Sheba could have shined her shoes, it's so
He was ugly and she was beautiful
He was ugly and she was so....

Is she conscious
As she sways across the room
Is she conscious
Of the weeping of the moon
Is she conscious
As she leaves the door ajar
Is she conscious
As she gets into the car

I don't even want to say her name
I don't even want to say her name, that's all
I want to sing it from the toppest top
I want to sing it from the toppest top, that's all

The Queen of Sheba could have shined her shoes
The Queen of Sheba could have shined her shoes, it's so
He was ugly and she was beautiful
He was ugly and she was so....

Is she conscious
Of the chauffeur as he drives
Is she conscious
As the ambulance arrives
