Why did you leave me

Why did you leave me
my young and perfect frame?
why did you leave me
with nothing but my name?
and how I always wooed them
with just a casual look
but now those cuties just ignore me
they'd rather go read a book
but now those cuties just ignore me
they'd much rather read a book

Why did you leave me
my once so vibrant youth
I'm not so happy
with seeing all this truth
and when did you leave me
my tight and glowing skin
I did not notice when it happened
it just kinda slid on in
I did not notice that it happened
it just kinda slid on in

When did you leave me
I thought I looked so good
oh why did you leave me
I thought you never would
last week I was so lovely
but then they fixed my eyes
and now I'm seeing all the wrinkles
and that's such a rude surprise!
and now I'm seeing all the wrinkles
and that's just a rude surprise!
