Lyrics ONCE WE WERE SO HAPPY,
YOU WERE MY VERY OWN,
THEN YOU BOUGHT THAT GUITAR
AND RUINED OUR HAPPY HOME.
YOU TOLD ME YOU'RE GONNA PICK,
YOU'RE GONNA BE A STAR,
WELL, I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.
YOU GAZE AT THAT GUITAR
ON YOUR KNEE
IN A WAY
THAT YOU NEVER LOOK AT ME.
THIS LOVE AFFAIR OF YOURS
HAS GONE TOO FAR,
AND I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.

YOU SAID IT WOULDN'T BE LONG
TILL YOU'D BE NUMBER ONE,
THAT WE'D HAVE LOTS OF MONEY
AND WE'D HAVE LOTS OF FUN.
WELL, ALL YOU'VE DONE
IS PICK AND GRIN
AND SING OFF KEY SO FAR,
AND I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.
YOU GAZE AT THAT GUITAR
ON YOUR KNEE
IN A WAY
THAT YOU NEVER LOOK AT ME.
THIS LOVE AFFAIR OF YOURS
HAS GONE TOO FAR,
AND I'M TIRED OF PLAYING
SECOND FIDDLE TO AN OLD GUITAR.
