His Pretty Life

lyrics

lyrics and music by Penelope Houston
Tonight he came to see the show
To say he knew her when
she was just a sweet and tender seventeen
"I've tasted of her lips" he said
"I feasted on her youth
Her innocence she freely gave to me."
The aging Casanova lives alone
reflecting on his pretty life and women that he's known
He keeps up with the latest and the greatest fashion trends
He never knew he turned a heart to stone

He came to see her band
her fury was still wet
he wore her long lost ribbon in his hair
She said she didn't know him
and get that ribbon back
before they broke his arm and threw him down the stairs

The aging Casanova lives alone
reflecting on his pretty life, the lovers that he's known
He keeps up with the latest and the greatest fashion trends
He never knew he turned a heart to stone

He comes to talk backstage
she wonders at his age
She can't believe he's only 41
The years were very cruel and
she greets him with a smile
her childhood's revenge has just been won

The aging Casanova lives alone
reflecting on his pretty life, the lovers that he's known
He keeps up with the latest and the greatest fashion trends
He never knew he turned a heart to stone
He never knew he turned a heart to stone
