Lyrics
INTOXICATED BY HER SONG
by Betsy Walter & Antonia Venezia


A husky voice
A silhouette
A diva in a satin gown
A glass of gin
A cigarette
The hottest lady in this town

She is livin' the blues that she's singin'
Like sweet vermouth, she smooths you along
You're enticed to leave a whole lot of money
'Cause she knows, you're intoxicated by her song

The smoky bar
The breathless crowd
She keeps you hangin' on a note
You can't resist
Another round
You drink the heartache in her soul

She is livin' the blues that she's singin'
Like sweet vermouth, she smooths you along
You're enticed to leave a whole lot of money
'Cause she knows, you're intoxicated by her song

She's got the looks that drive the poor men crazy
Moves like a spider in the dark
She's got a web to capture your existence
She haunts your heart

It's 2:00 AM
She counts the tips
And wishes for her pot of gold
She hails a cab
Then blows a kiss
And heads home for her second show

She is livin' the blues that she's singin'
Like sweet vermouth, she smooths you along
You're enticed to leave a whole lot of money
'Cause she knows, you're intoxicated by her song

A husky voice
A silhouette
A diva in a satin gown
