Lonely Lady #17 lyrics

Lonely lady one, she run away
And number two, she do the same
Lady number three walk out on me
Like number four
Who's keeping score?

Lady five, oh how she lied
She made me pay some dues
Six and seven, eight, nine, ten
They really were bad news
Oh no, they'd only break my heart
That's how it seems
And then I finally came upon
A lady seventeen

Lonely lady number seventeen
She stayed a while
She had the style
Lonely lady number seventeen
She got to be with lonely me
Lonely
Lonely lady number seventeen
Yeah
Lonely lady!

Ladies eleven, twelve and thirteen
They came and went
Baby, I still can hear them sayin'
"It's time to repent"
I turned around and there she was
With such a sweet surprise
A lovin' face, lovin' smile
And love lights in her eyes

Lonely lady number seventeen
You stayed a while
You had the style
Lonely lady number seventeen
Come on and be with lonely me

Oh no
When lady fourteen walked out
That's when I screamed
I had no luck with lady fifteen
Or sweet sixteen

But lonely lady number seventeen
You stayed a while
You had the style
Lonely lady number seventeen
Come and and be with lonely me

Lonely
Lonely lady number seventeen
Yeah
Lonely lady
She makes me feel so sociable
Lonely lady
Number seventeen
Yes
Lonely lady, lonely
Lonely lady
Number seventeen
