Verse:
You were ev -'ry -bod -y's sweet -heart,
Not so long a -go,
And in our home town, each boy a -round,
Longed to be your beau.
But things are dif -f'rent to -day,
I'm might -y sor -ry to say:
 
Chorus:
You're No -bod -y's Sweet -heart now.
They don't bab -y you some -how,
Fan -cy hose, sil -ken gown
You'd be out of place in your own home town,
When you walk down the ave -e -nue,
I just can't be -lieve that it's you.
Paint -ed lips, Paint -ed eyes,
Wear -ing a Bird of Par -a -dise.
It all seems wrong some -how,
That you're No -bod -y's Sweet -heart now.
