I'm in Disgrace

Ray Davies, released on Schoolboys in Disgrace, © Davray Music Ltd. 1976

.

The first time that I saw you

You were the lady of my dreams.

The very next time I had to make you mine,

And I treated you like a queen.

The third time that I saw you

You treated me with such distaste,

Now I wish I'd never seen your face.

I'm in disgrace,

I'm in disgrace.

Because I fell for your pretty face,

I'm in disgrace. He's in disgrace.

I'm in disgrace. He's in disgrace.

You captured me in your embrace.

.

There's no use blaming me

And saying I was your ruination

Because it was you equally

That got us into this situation.

It wasn't lust, it wasn't rape,

It was just a mistake

I'm in disgrace. He's in disgrace.

I'm in disgrace. He's in disgrace.

Because I fell for your pretty face.

I'm in disgrace. She's in disgrace.

I'm in disgrace. He's in disgrace.

You captured me in your embrace.

.

Was your love real or faked?

Or was it only infatuation?

Picture you in my place.

I wish I'd acted with a little less haste.

I'm in disgrace.

I'm in disgrace.

Because I fell for your pretty face.

Oh what a waste. He's in disgrace.

I'm in disgrace. He's in disgrace.

Now my name's dirt and I'm disgraced.

I'm in disgrace.
