Well if you've been a married woman 
And things didn't seem to work out
Divorce is the key to bein' loose and free 
So you're gonna be talked about

Everybody knows that you've loved once 
They think you'll love again
You can't have a male friend 
When you're a has been of a woman you're rated X

And if you're rated X 
You're some kind of gold
Even men turning silver try to make
But I think it's wrong 
To judge every picture if a cheap camera makes a mistake

And when your best friend's husband says to you 
You've sure started lookin' good
You should've known he would 
And he would if he could and he will if you're rated X

Well nobody knows where you're goin' 
But they sure know where you've been
All their thinkin' of is your experience of love 
Their minds eat up with sin

The women all look at you like you're bad 
And the men all hope you are
But if you go too far you're gonna wear the scar 
Of a woman rated X
And if you're rated X
You're some kind of gold
Even men turning silver try to make
But I think it's wrong 
To judge every picture if a cheap camera makes a mistake

And when your best friend's husband says to you 
You've sure started lookin' good
You should've known he would 
And he would if he could and he will if you're rated X
