lyrics

a steady rain fell. and froze on the sidewalk. while betty made her way among the crowd. wondering aloud. which guests would be invited to the do. and wondering who'd sit next to. who's the most talented hostess of all. she live in a basement apartment. moved cat-like through the rooms. he had died and left her to struggle. ten years ago last june. now he's walking across to her. once again he's the boss of her. it's important to understand. the menu for a party must be well planned. and everyone gets along just grand. guess that plain old chicken wouldn't do. wouldn't do at all. and who's the most talented hostess of all. now betty feels his eyes upon her in the aisle. now betty turns around. presents him with her biggest brightest smile. but folks are cruel. her smile is greeted by emptiness. that shocks her in her world. an empty truth. she hurries home. and tries to shake it off. a steady rain fell and froze on the eyelids of her
