lyrics

You were the darling
of the back alley bars and the one night stands the sweetheart of Harlem
and they’d all gather round just to hear you again
Playing mid-town Manhattan,
you still got’em all in the palm of your hand
white gardenias and satin
but you’re still hangin’ ‘round with the boys in the band

chorus #1:
What you drinking, Eleanora?
Got your eye on the top shelf?
Hell, I’ll do what I can for you
but you should learn to help yourself

Now they’re sick of your drama
so you’re working for your ticket home
and you just miss your mama
yeah you just want someone you can call your own
What you need is a good man
someone to take care of you
cause you don’t give a goddamn
you earned what you’ve got now it’s yours to lose

chorus #2:
Where’d you get that shiner, Eleanora? Is he hitting you again?
Don’t you know everyone adores you, can’t you find a better man?

They took all your money
your jewelry and your fancy clothes
they called you a junkie,
and they came just to hear you miss a note
