All she wrote

Ray Davies, released on Other People's Lives (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2006

.

All she wrote was a goodbye letter

"It's over for us, to tell you the truth

I've met this person in a disco

He's really special, reminds me of you

.

"Now you can mix in those swinging circles

Single bars and gay cafes

With pickup lines to impress young schoolgirls

And big Australian barmaids"

.

That's all she wrote

On the back of that old brown envelope

A few killer lines to get my goat

That's all she wrote

.

All she wrote on that goodbye letter

"It's over for us, to tell you the truth

And my new man is a vegetarian

He laughs a lot, not like you"

.

Picked up one of her old love letters

"You are such a caring man"

Such a change from that cold, bitter scam

Of what I was, and what I am

.

That's all she wrote

On the back of an old brown envelope

A few killer lines to get my goat

That's all she wrote

.

"Did you ever really love me?

Did you ever really care?

Now you're free to live your fantasy

And I'm not there

To cramp your style and blow your cover

Now you're free to take your lover

To titty bars and low life clubs"

.

All she wrote is a goodbye letter

"It's over for us, to tell you the truth

I've met this person in a disco

He's really special, reminds me of you

.

"So don't pretend to be a new man

Be chauvinistic, that's your way

Now you're free to make your play

For that big Australian barmaid

(Big Australian barmaid)

Big Australian barmaid"

.

That's all she wrote

On the back of that old brown envelope

A few killer lines in that suicide note

That's all she wrote

.
