all of her lovers all talk of her notes
and the flowers that they never sent
and wasn’t she easy
and isn’t she pretty in pink
the one who insists he was first in the line
is the last to remember her name
he’s walking around in this dress that she wore
she is gone but the joke’s the same

Psychedelic Furs, Pretty in Pink, 1981
