Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem 
Lying to herself 'cause her liquor's top shelf 
It's alarming honestly how charming she can be 
Fooling everyone, telling how she's having fun 

She says you don't want to be like me 
Don't wanna see all the things I've seen 
I'm dying, I'm dying 
She says you don't want to get this way 
Famous, and dumb, and no age 
My, I'm dying 

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen 
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like God, her mind's like a diamond 
Buy her tonight, she's still shining 
Like lightning, light, like lightning 

Carmen, Carmen, staying up 'til morning 
Only seventeen, but she walks the streets so mean 
It's alarming truly how disarming you can be 
Eating soft ice cream, Coney Island queen 
She says you don't want to be like me 
Looking for fun, get me high for free 
I'm dying, I'm dying 
She says you don't want to get this way 
Street walking at night, and a star by day 

It's tiring, tiring 

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen 
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like God, her mind's like a diamond 
Buy her tonight, she's still shining 
Like lightning, light, like lightning 

Baby's all dressed up, with nowhere to go 
That's the little story of the girl you know 
Relying on the kindness of strangers 
Time and cherry marks while doing party favors 
Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on 
Sing your song, song, now, the camera's on 
And you're alive again 

Mon amour, je sais que tu m'aimes aussi 

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen 
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes 
She laughs like god, her mind's like a diamond 
Buy her tonight, she's still shining 
Like lightning, light, like lightning 

Like lightning, light, like lightning

Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem 
Lying to herself 'cause her liquor's top shelf
