Lazy Susan, when you gonna settle down?
I remember when you were just a girl
Dressed in every colour, just in case you missed a few
Your lipstick traces in all the wrong places, your lonesome blues
All your life, waitin’ for the perfect guy
Lazy Susan, I hate to see a woman cry

Lazy Susan, underneath your eiderdown
When the rains come, you’re movin’ to another town
Pretty in your powder blue holden, your sunnies and two-tone shoes
Your long tall stories of faded glories, your lonesome blues
All your life, waitin’ for the man to come
Lazy Susan, I can tell you’re not that dumb

Lazy Susan, forgive me if I seem to be rude
At the drive-in I was just an interlude
All that back-seat action, with anyone you’d choose
Your party dresses and hot caresses, your lonesome blues
All your life, I could never tell what’s real
Lazy Susan, you’re caught in some crazy deal
All your life, you’re sadder than a circus clown
Lazy Susan, when you gonna settle down?

All that back-seat action, I miss it like a birthday cake
Lazy Susan, I don’t wanna see you break.
