Betty Wang


Betty Wang, roll your jeans

Cut your hair and clean your sleeves

I don’t care where you live

Or how far uptown it is

Across the street we could meet

At the Edison Hotel

Bought you lunch

Bought you sleep

Took you up my stairs to meet

If you have to be back by nine

Telephone the report

Take a taxi ten before

You’re the only girl on the team

You don’t golf

You don’t smoke

You don’t understand their jokes


Su Chia

And if you leave New York

I don’t care, I don’t care

If you leave New York

I don’t care

I will follow you back to Tokyo


Betty Wang, you don’t lie

When you give career advice

Off the clock, at a bar

Singing Hammerstein and George

You’re the only friend on the team

You don’t laugh at my jokes

I appreciate your time
