living in the bottom half of the world
Saving up for Friday night
dancing underneath the lights, she would whirl

the last in line, the lost soul
Love today is bought and sold
Betty wants the love of days gone old

Prim, proper little miss, gimme a little kiss, don't fuss

Who loves you Betty, always something standing in your way
you better get out Betty babe
Who loves you Betty, always someone looking the other way
you better get out Betty babe
