It seems so long ago
Nancy was alone
Looking ate the Late Late show
Through a semi-precious stone

In the house of honesty
Her father was on trial
In the house of mystery
There was no one at all
There was no one at all

It seems so long ago
None of us were strong
Nancy wore green stockings
And she slept with everyone

She never said she'd wait for us
Although she was alone
I think she fell in love for us
In nineteen sixty one
In nineteen sixty one

It seems so long ago
Nancy was alone
A forty five beside her head
An open telephone

We told her she was beautiful
We told her she was free
But none of us would meet her in
The house of mystery
The house of mystery

And now you look around you
See her everywhere
Many use her body
Many comb her hair

In the hollow of the night
When you are cold and numb
You hear her talking freely then
She's happy that you've come
She's happy that you've come
