"I don't mean to be bad," said the bubble headed blonde, 
and it was probably true. 
"But what else can you do when looks are all people notice 
and looks are all that they want, too."

And now she's sitting in the bedroom and she's crying 
Now she lies beneath his silver satin 
wings Cause she was never raised to know any better 
because he is the best thing she has ever seen

And Papa said she's too cute for words 
So she never learned how to speak 
And mama said she don't need to read 
just a hot Mercedes and a decent man that won't (spring a leak)? 
So now she's sitting in the bedroom and she's crying 
Now she lies beneath his silver satin wings 
Cause she was never raised to know any better 
because he is the best thing she has ever seen

In school all she learned that talk is cheap 
but looks they come for free 
They said "Hey, why try and think girl, if you can smile 
and get anything you need?"

So now she's sitting in the bedroom and she's crying 
Now she lies beneath his silver satin wings 
Cause she was never raised to know any better 
because he is the best thing she has ever seen

She said "Sometimes there's this fear inside 
that cannot sleep at night, though he is sleeping fine 
And I used to like the way he talked 
before I knew promises were just other words for 'goodbye'."

See now she's sitting in the bedroom and she's crying 
As she lies beneath his silver satin wings

Cause she was never raised to know any better 
because he is the best thing she 
He is the best thing she will ever see
