BETTY JO MARSHALL (William Ellis / Dexter Shaffer) Connie Francis - 1969 Betty Jo Marshall goes to work from nine to five Betty Jo Marshall wears a ring she had to buy Ev'ry evenin' on the other side of town Betty Jo Marshall becomes Lucinda Brown Betty Jo Marshall was a hometown beauty queen Kissed her mama, then she left to chase her dream She wrote home about the good life ev'ry day Town folks all figured Betty Jo was on her way Now time and trouble took the fire out of her eyes Beauty faded every time she compromised Cocktail parties stole the rose out of her cheek And left a common face of ninety bucks a week And there were no fur jackets on a secretary's pay Betty Jo knew she'd have to go back home someday How could she face up to those she left behind And all those letters full of lies that she had signed Clothes and money were the least she could expect And pay was good down at the local discotheque Name and address just in case the man comes round New York City and my name's Lucinda Brown So Betty Jo Marshall sacrificed her high ideals On a cross of pain Lucinda Brown conceals Did she dare give up her job from nine to five And if she did how long would Lucy Brown survive Now Betty Jo Marshall made the papers yesterday Go go dancer found floatin' in the bay Local beauty will be brought back to home town Betty Jo Marshall victim of Lucinda Brown Betty Jo Marshall victim of Lucinda Brown (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2010)
