So Beau­ti­ful

I was listen­ing to this con­ver­sa­tion
Noti­cing my day­dream stim­u­lated me more
I was crum­bling with anti­cip­a­tion
You’d bet­ter send me home before I tumble down to the floor

You’re so beau­ti­ful but oh so bor­ing
I’m won­der­ing what am I doing here
So beau­ti­ful but oh so bor­ing, I’m won­der­ing
If any­one out there really cares
About the curl­ers in your hair
My little golden baby, where have all your birds flown now?

Something’s glisten­ing in my ima­gin­a­tion
Motor­vat­in’ some­thing close to break­ing the law
Wait a mo’ before you take me down to the sta­tion
I’ve nev­er known a one who’d make me sui­cid­al before

She was so beau­ti­ful but oh so bor­ing
I’m won­der­ing what was I doing there
So beau­ti­ful but oh so bor­ing, I’m won­der­ing
If any­one out there really cares
About the col­our of your hair
My little golden baby, where have all your birds flown now?
