Art Garfunkel – Up In The World lyrics

You've come Up In The World,
And it's all to your credit.
You made something of your life
Like you always said you would.
But what ever happened to the girl
I used to know and all those halcyon days of love?
You've come Up In The World,

And it's such a shame.
You made success of a dream,
But it seems so empty now
With your weak excuses and your
Condescending ways and
Your all-too-frequent nights alone.
