A Dsus2 Victoria dines alone, she skips the potatoes. A Dsus2 Victoria begins her meal with greens and tomatoes. Dm A Reading the newspaper carefully folded beside her. Dm A Hanging her coat by her table and letting it hide her.
Victoria dines alone, her dress is old-fashioned.
Victoria watches her weight, each meal is rationed.
Salisbury steak, and news of the student disorders.
Parsnips in butter, and armies patrolling their borders.
Dm A Victoria's feet are tired, she wants to go home. Dm A She orders her coffee with cream, and drinks it alone.
Victoria dines alone with Hollywood fables.
The waiters are counting the time and polishing tables.
Victoria's reading of strong astrological forces.
Cheesecake and coffee, and columns of Reno divorces.
Victoria's feet are tired, she wants to go home.
She orders her coffee with cream, and drinks it alone.
Victoria dines alone, she skips the potatoes.
(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1967)
