Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Ms. Lonely
 
Ms. Lonely



I've got Bill
My one dollar bill
Grant left long ago

Am I running out of things
Or are things running out on me?

I suffer from insufficiency

I'm Ms. Penniless

I'm a Barbie
My Ken's in an army
Which I don't know

Am I running out on love
Or is love running out on me?

I suffer from insufficiency

I'm Ms. Loveless

I have people
Me, myself, and seagulls
On a deserted beach

Am I running out on friends
Or are friends running out on me?

I suffer from insufficiency

I'm Ms. Friendless

I have everything
All that loneliness brings
So much's out of reach

Friends, love, and money
I'm sufficient at insufficiency

Give me a penny, love, and a friend
Not on loan, for real not pretend

Am I running out of stuff?
Too little can not be enough

They run out on me

Call me Ms. Lonely.
