It was 1927 Had the world at my feet A pretty girl on each arm My family was so proud of me...
It was 1927 Had the world at my feet A pretty girl on each arm My family was so proud of me I built a lot of buildings Tore half of 'em down One by one They all crumbled just like me But like a storm in a teacup Like a smile sent down from heaven Madge, I loved you then and I love you now We ate in the finest restaurants Had the wealthiest friends Most of them are gone now No one left to say, "I knew you when" It seems so long since I've remembered the girl I used to know She never saw any of my money But she watched it come and go Like a storm in a teacup like a smile sent down from heaven Madge I loved you then and I love you now They call this place "Sunnyside" But I ain't seen the sun in a long, long time And my hands don't seem too steady now But they're still holding onto you Madge, she's probably married now in a nice white house and me I just sit here in my room Quiet as a mouse But I got my TV turned up loud I'm not going to hear myself retreat If only I'd have kept her I'd have stayed on my feet Like a storm in a teacup like a smile sent down from heaven Madge I loved you then and I love you now...
