It seems so long ago
None of us were very strong
Ah but, Nancy wore green stockings
And she, she slept with everyone
She never said she'd wait for us
Even though she was alone
I think she fell in love for us
In nineteen sixty one
In nineteen sixty one

Ah the morning would not come
Nancy was alone
A forty five beside her head
An open telephone
Yes, we told her she was beautiful
We all told her she was free
But none of us could meet her in
The House of Mystery
The House of Mystery

And now why don't you look around you
See her everywhere
Many of you use her body
Many comb her hair
And in the hollow of the night
When you are cold and numb
You hear her talking freely then
She's happy that you've come
She's happy that you've come
