While the traffic crawled by in the street outside She was sitting in her kitchenette Listening to the scuttle of the rats in the wall And staring at her TV set.

In a soft close-up, with her hair backlit, She seemed to glow inside Yeah, but something went wrong, 'cause forty years on She took a lot of pills and died.
