Lyrics:I learned the truth at seventeen
That love was meant for beauty queens
And high school
girls with clear-skinned smiles
Who married young and then retired

The valentines I
never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
Were spent on one more beautify
At
seventeen I learned the truth

And those of us with ravaged faces
Lacking in the
social graces
Desp'rately remained at home
Inventing lovers on the phone
Who called
to say "Come dance with me"
And murmered vague obscenities
It isn't all it seems at
seventeen

A brown eyed girl in hand-me-downs
Whose name I never could pronounce

Said, "Pity, please, the ones who serve
They only get what they deserve.
The rich
relationed hometown queen
Marries into what she needs
A guarantee of company
And
haven for the elderly"

Remember those who win the game
Lose the love they sought to
gain
In debentures of quality
And dubious integrity
The smalltown eyes will gape at
you
In dull surprise when payment due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen

To
those of us who knew the pain
Of valentines that never came
And those whose names were
never called
When choosing sides for basketball
It was long ago and far away
The
world was younger than today
And dreams were all they gave for free
To ugly ducking girls
like me

We all play the game and when we dare
To cheat ourselves at solitaire

Inventing lovers on the phone
Repenting other lives Unidentified
That call and say, "Come
dance with me"
And murmur vague obscenities
At ugly girls like me at seventeen
