      About "Lady Writer"

      Lyrics for Dire Straits - "Lady Writer"

      Lady Writer on the TV
      Talk about the Virgin Mary
      Reminded me of you
      Expectations left to come up to yeah

      Lady writer on the TV
      Yeah, she had another quality
      The way you used to look
      And I know you never read a book

      [Chorus:]
      Just the way that her hair fell down around her face
      Then I recall my fall from grace
      Another time, another place

      Lady writer on the TV
      She had all the brains and the beauty
      The picture does not fit
      You talked to me when you felt like it

      [Chorus]

      Yes and your rich old man
      You know he'd call her a dead ringer
      You got the same command
      Plus you mother was a jazz singer

      [Chorus]

      Lady writer on the TV
      She knew all about a history
      You couldn't hardly write your name
      I think I want you just the same as the

      Lady writer on the TV
      Talking about the Virgin Mary
      Yeah you know I'm talking about you and me
      And the lady writer on the TV
      Lady writer on the TV
      Talking about the Virgin Mary
      Yeah you know I'm talking about you and me
      And the lady writer on the TV
