lyrics

Santa Barbara wasn't big enough
You were ready for the harder stuff
You're the boss, apple sauce
Queen of horses
Found a place where I can rest at ease
Think I'll have my breakfast at Tiffany's

Andy is this real?
You promised me the world
But wasn't I just one more factory girl?
The needle made the bad things go away
Just wanted to be famous for a day

Poor little rich girl puffing cigarettes
Rolled the dice while losing all the bets
Ciao Manhattan, socialite
Queen of jewels
New York City, falling down a well
Checked into the Chelsea hotel

Andy is this real?
You promised me the world
But wasn't I just one more factory girl?
The needle made the bad things go away
Just wanted to be famous for a day

Factory girl, beauty so divine
Scattered pills dream of sparkle wine
Daddy held her close at night
Mommy's angel
28 and broken on the trail
It's just another New York fairytale


Andy is this real?
You promised me the world
But wasn't I just one more factory girl?
The needle made the people run away
I wanted to be loved just for a day
