The morning sun touched lightly on / The eyes of Lucy Jordan / In a white suburban bedroom / In a white suburban town / And she lay there neath the covers / Dreaming of a thousand lovers / Til the world turned to orange / And the room went spinning round / At the age of 37 / She realized she’d never ride / Through Paris in a sports car / With the warm wind in her hair / So she let the phone keep ringing / As she sat there softly singing / Pretty nursery rhymes she’d memorized / In her Daddy’s easy chair / Her husband he’s off to work / And the kids are off to school / And there were oh so many ways / For her to spend her days / She could clean the house for hours / Or rearrange the flowers / Or run naked through the shady street / Screaming all the way / At the age of 37 / She realized she’d never ride / Through Paris in a sports car / With the warm wind in her hair / So she let the phone keep ringing / As she sat there softly singing / Pretty nursery rhymes she’d memorized / In her Daddy’s easy chair / The evening sun touched gently on / The eyes of Lucy Jordan / On the rooftop where she climbed / When all the laughter grew too loud / And she bowed and curtsied to the man / Who reached and offered her his hand / And he led her down to the long white car / That waited past the crowd / At the age of 37 / She knew she’d found forever / As she rode along through Paris / With the warm wind in her hair
