You were mine for just a while
now you're putting on a style

and you've never once looked back
at your home across the tracks

you're the gossip of the town

but my heart can still be found
where you tossed it on the ground
pick me up on your way down

Pick me up on your way down
when you're blue and all alone

when the glamour starts to bore you

come on back where you belong

You may be their pride and joy

but they'll find another toy
and they'll take away your crown

pick me up on your way down

They have changed you're attitude

made you haughty and so rude
Your new friends can take the blame

underneath you're still the same

When you learn these things are true
I'll be waiting here for you

As you tumble to the ground

Pick me up on your way down.

Pick me up on your way down

when you're blue and all alone

when the glamour starts to bore you

come on back where you belong

You may be their pride and joy

but they'll find another toy

and they'll take away your crown

pick me up on your way down

yes they'll take away your crown

pick me up on your way down
