Stan Ridgway – Whatever Happened To You? lyrics

Now you're a long way from graduation and the age of teen
Sometimes you feel like you woke up on the wrong side of the scene
You pull yourself out of bed, you're lookin' pretty good for your age (mm-hmm!)
You open up the paper, scan the headline and you turn the page
Now there's a picture of Melissa, yeah she married some French tycoon
It says here they bought a house from Cher they're gonna sell real soon
And on the Metro pages, Jackie downtown with the cuffs on his hands
And looks like Mary left Jerry got with Barry now they're both in some kind of rock-'n-roll band
Chorus:
I wonder whatever happened to you
Did you survive and did you get through?
I wonder whatever happened to you
Did you survive and did you get through?
Well now Jimmy's working magic on a Shanghai movie this year
While Larry's on the tv set sellin' low-cal cheese and beer
And Christie's goin' crazy paintin' tin can dolls in her garage
While Laverne walks the boulevard, and keeps chasin' Hollywood mirage
Chorus repeat
And are you happy?
And did it all work out?
Whatever happened to you?
I never found out
Where you went to
Well now sometimes I wonder whatever happened to you
Did you ever survive and did you ever get through?
And do you drive a brand new car?
And do your kids always know just who you are?
Are you happy? Did it all work out?
Whatever happened to you?
Whatever happened to you.
