Lyrics of At Seventeen

I learned the truth at seventeen that love was meant for beauty queens
And high school girls with clear-skinned smiles who married young and then retired
And the valentines
I never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
Were spent on one more beautiful
At seventeen
I learned the truth
And those of us with ravaged faces lacking in the social graces
Desperately remained at home inventing lovers on the phone
Who called to say come dance with me and murmured vague obscenities
It isn't all it seems at seventeen
A brown-eyed girl in hand-me-downs whose name
I never could pronounce
Said pity please the ones who serve they only get what they deserve
And the rich relationed hometown queen marries into what she needs with a guarantee of company
And haven for the elderly
So remember those who win the game lose the love they sought to gain
In debentures of quality and dubious integrity
Their small-town eyes will gape at you in dull surprise when payments due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen
And to those of us who knew the pain of valentines that never came
And those whose names were never called when choosing sides for basketball
And it was long ago and far away
The world was younger than today
When dreams were all they gave for free to ugly duckling girls like me
We all play the game and when we dare we cheat ourselves at solitaire
Inventing lovers on the phone repenting other lives unknown
That call and say come dance with me and murmured vague obscenities
At ugly girls like me at seventeen
