>She said that she was working for the ABC News
>It was as much of the alphabet as she knew how to use
>Her perfume was unspeakable
>It lingered in the air
>Like her artificial laughter
>Her mementos of affairs
>"Oh" I said "I see you know him"
>"Isn't that very fortunate for you"
>And she showed me his calling card
>He came third or fourth and there were more than one or two
>He was a fine idea at the time
>Now he's a brilliant mistake
>
>He thought he was the King of America
>But it was just a boulevard of broken dreams
>A trick they do with mirrors and with chemicals
>The words of love in whispers
>And the axe of love in screams
>I wish that I could push a button
>And talk in the past and not the present tense
>And watch this lovin' feeling disappear
>Like it was common sense
>I was a fine idea at the time
>Now I'm a brilliant mistake
>
