The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan
Marianne Faithfull Lyrics


The morning sun touched lightly on
The eyes of Lucy Jordan
In a white suburban bedroom
In a white suburban town

And she lay there 'neath the covers
Dreaming of a thousand lovers
'Til the world turned to orange
And the room went spinning round

At the age of thirty seven
She realized she'd never ride
Through Paris in a sports car
With the warm wind in her hair

So she let the phone keep ringing
And she sat there softly singing
Little nursery rhymes she'd memorized
In her Daddy's easy chair

Her husband, he's off to work
And the kids are off to school
And there were oh so many ways
For her to spend her days

She could clean the house for hours
Or rearrange the flowers
Or run naked through the shady street
Screaming all the way

At the age of thirty seven
She realized she'd never ride
Through Paris in a sports car
With the warm wind in her hair

So she let the phone keep ringing
As she sat there softly singing
Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized
In her Daddy's easy chair

The evening sun touched gently on
The eyes of Lucy Jordan
On the rooftop where she climbed
When all the laughter grew too loud

And she bowed and curtsied to the man
Who reached and offered her his hand
And he led her down to the long white car that waited past the crowd

At the age of thirty seven
She knew she'd found forever
As she rode along through Paris
With the warm wind in her hair

Well, I managed to get to paris with the warm wind in my hair, on my motorcycle at the age of 58. Got stopped by the cops for not wearing my helmet, but I told them about this song and they decided not to fine me. French cops have a lot of heart.

@Christopher Allsop Want company Chris? I did a solo European tour the year I turned 60 (I just turned 63 but told I look mid-40s). It was my dream too - I had a blast. I remember being on a crowded train from Duesseldorf to Amsterdam hoisting a piece of luggage over my head and everyone clapping when I nailed it in the overhead carrier. I travelled by train, plane, bus (9 hours between Vienna, Austria and Wurzburg, Germany) and car. It was awesome

So, did Cyndi Lauper....not quite the same except they both have the same cut under the chin....I am glad for you Spike that you went to Paris at the age of 58 more seniors should follow your example

No half naked bodies. No arses swinging in front of your face. Just a gorgeous woman, with a gorgeous voice. Pure class.
Stay strong girl....
