Song:

6     -8       7        7    7    -7   7     7

I learned the truth at sev-en-teen

A Brown  eyed girl  in hand me downs

to Those  of   us   who knew the pain

 6         8     -8     -8      -8    7    -8     -8

That love was meant for beau-ty queens

Whose name I nev-   er could pro-nounce

of   val- en-tines that nev-er came

6         8       -8      -8       7       7        -7       -7

and high school girls with clear skinned smiles

said pity       please the one    who    serve

and those whose names were  never        called

6         8      -8        -8        7     7    -7  -7

Who mar-ried young and then re-tired.

They only     get what they deserve

When choosing sides for basketball

6       -8   7    7     7   -7     7       7    (7)

The val-en-tines I nev-  er knew

and the rich relationed hometown (queen)

It  was long a-  go and  far   a- (way)

6         8     -8   -8        -8  7      -8    -8

The Fri-day night cha-rades of youth

Maries   into     what she needs

The world was younger than today

6            8      -8  -8     7     7   -7   -7

Were spent on one more beau-ti-ful

With a guarantee of company

And dreams where all they gave for free

6      -8  7    7   -7    -7          7     7

At sev-en-teen I  learned the truth.

And haven for the elderly

To ugly duckling girls like me

chorus

  5        8     8    8   7      -9     8    8 -8

And those of us with rav-aged fa-ces

Remember those who win the game

We will play the game & when we dare

-7      -8    -8 -7    8 -8       7 -7

Lack-ing in the soc-ial gra-ces

Lose the love they sought to gain

To cheat ourselves at solitare

-7     7   7   7   -7   -7        7    7

Des-prate-ly re-mained at home

In debentures of quality

Inventing lovers on the phone

5    -7      7      7   7  -7   7       7

In-vent-ing lov-ers on the phone

And dubious integrity

Repenting other lives unknown

5           8     -9 -8      7         -8      8     7

Who called to say come dance with me

Their smalltown eyes will gape at you

That call to say come dance with me

5        -7            7     7        7  -7   7    7

And mur-mured vague ob-scen-i-ties

In dull surprise when payment due

And murmur vague obscenities

5  -6 -7  -7  -6  -7      5     6  -7    -7

It is n't all it seems, At sev-en-teen

Exceeds accounts received, At 17

At ugly girls like me, At sev-en-teen
