Lyrics verse 1:
SHE'S JUST A SECRETARY
IN A SMALL RECORDING FIRM,
BUT WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC,
THERE AIN'T NOTHING
SHE CAN LEARN,
FOR EV'RYTHING SHE LIVES
AND BREATHES
IS WRITTEN ON AN ALBUM SLEEVE.
SHE CAN TELL YOU
WHO IS HOT
WHO WILL MAKE IT
AND WHO WILL NOT.

Chorus:
AND SHE LOVES TO HEAR THE MUSIC,
SHE'S GOT EV'RY LYRIC DOWN,
SHE LOVES TO HEAR THEM SAY
SHE'S GOT THE GREATEST EARS
IN TOWN.
SHE HANGS OUT AT THE STUDIO,
THERE AIN'T A POP STAR
SHE DON'T KNOW,
AND SOMETIMES
THEY TAKE HER HOME,
BUT SHE ALWAYS
WAKES UP ALONE.

verse 2:
THE MEN THAT WANT TO MARRY HER
CAN NEVER SATISFY,
THE INNER RHYTHMS
THAT SHE HEARS
ARE ALL THAT KEEP HER HIGH.
AND SO THEY TURN AROUND
AND GO
AND LEAVE HER
BY HER RADIO.
SHE NEVER LOVED THEM ANYWAY,
NOT LIKE SHE LOVES
THE MEN WHO PLAY.

Chorus:
SHE LOVES TO HEAR THE MUSIC,
SHE'S GOT EV'RY LYRIC DOWN,
SHE LOVES TO HEAR THEM SAY
SHE'S GOT THE GREATEST EARS
IN TOWN.
SHE THERE AT EV'RY STUDIO,
THE FIRST TO COME,
THE LAST TO GO,
AND SOMETIMES
THEY TAKE HER HOME,
BUT SHE ALWAYS
WAKES UP ALONE.

verse 3:
THE YEARS
WILL NOT BE KIND TO HER,
THE WORLD
IS FOR THE YOUNG.
THE BANDS THAT PLAYED
SO TIGHTLY KNOT
WILL SOON BECOME UNSTRUNG.
AND SHE'LL BE JUST ANOTHER FACE,
OUT OF STYLE
AND OUT OF PLACE,
BUT WHEN THE SONGS
REVIVE AGAIN,
SHE'LL COME TO LIFE
AND TELL THEM WHEN...

Chorus:
SHE LOVED TO HEAR THE MUSIC,
SHE HAD EV'RY LYRIC DOWN,
SHE LOVED TO HEAR THEM SAY
SHE HAD THE GREATEST EARS
IN TOWN.
SHE COULD HAVE BEEN
SOMEBODY'S WIFE,
BUT AS A CHILD HEARD,
MACK THE KNIFE.
AND EACH TIME
SHE TOOK IT HOME
SO SHE'LL ALWAYS
WAKE UP ALONE.
