Elisabeth Welch – The Girl I Knew lyrics
Every day, in every way
What tricks your luck will play,
One day you're down and out,
The next, you're saving

Things I took to enterprise,
I've had a big surprise,
I find my future lies
In misbehaving

[I'll] [sit before] my dinner and [sing]
The girl I knew no longer is there

The girl I knew
Who'd never be false to you
Come in the [worry you]
And friends of the family, too

She's never joined the gay crowd,
Drinking and dancing,
Moonlight romancing,

She never dreamed,
[How] to [search] a descendant,
Rich and resplendent

Now, I'll dine alone
With any who'd care to [call]
No matter who,
So long as he's well to do,

Life's so amusing,
Without shame,
Must [give] you blame me

She'll quite agree,
That woman, I used to be


Every day, in every way
Life's getting more worthwhile
I'm queen of cabaret,
And dukes adore me

Furs and hats, the [made their plats]
Of ultramodern style,
Don't pass my time of day,
They only bore me

That girl I knew,
Will never return,
Now I'm a star
With money to burn

The girl I knew
Could never be false to you
[Come in] [of you]
Or friends of the family, too

She's never joined the gay crowd,
Drinking and dancing,
Moonlight romancing,

She never dreamed,
[How] to [search] a descendant,
Rich and resplendent

Now, I'll dine alone
With any who'd care to [own]
No matter who,
So long as he's well to do,

Life's so amusing,
Without shame,
[up] if you blame me

She'll quite agree,
That woman, I used to be
