Stephen Bishop

It was 1927
Had the world at my feet
A pretty girl on each arm
My family was so proud of me

I built a lot of buildings
Tore half of 'em down
One by one they all crumbled
Just like me

But like a storm in a teacup
Like a smile sent down from Heaven
Madge, I loved you then
And I love you now

We ate in the finest restaurants
Had the wealthiest friends
Most of them are gone, now
No one left to say, I knew you when

Seems so long since I've remembered
The girl I used to know
She never saw any of my money
But she watched it come and go

Like a storm in a teacup
Like a smile sent down from Heaven
Madge, I loved you then
And I love you now

They call this place 'Sunnyside'
But I ain't seen the sun in a long, long time
And my hands don't seem too steady, now
But they're still holding onto you

Madge, she's probably married now
In a nice white house
And me, I just sit here in my room
Quiet as a mouse

But I got my TV turned up loud
I'm not going to hear myself retreat
If only I'd have kept her
I'd have stayed on my feet

Like a storm in a teacup
Like a smile sent down from Heaven
Madge, I loved you then
And I love you now

Madge, I loved you then
And I love you now
