I'm A Mess

I'm a mess
I should be filling rooms
with the sweet smell of success
I'm a mess, look at what I've been reduced to
I don't blame you for saying no
when you should have answered "yes"
But darling, darling, darling,
look at me now
I'm a mess

I'm a mess, I'm a wreck, I'm really on the deck
I'm a mess, look at how I'm living
Some of these days I'm gonna get back on my feet
and quit this blue address
But darling, darling, darling,
look at me now,
I'm a mess

The smart set I used to run around with
are invisible now
They all cut me loose when one said that
what I've got might just rub off on them somehow
I'm a mess for want of your caress
Darling, darling look at me now, I'm a mess
