Overnight Sensation

(Pat Robinson, Phil Seymour)



You know I met her in Manhattan
Once again in New Orleans
Who woulda thought it coulda happened
Baby dirtied up her jeans

And she's been taken to the city
And put up on display
Never thought it woulda happened
She's goin' all the way
Nothin' left to say

She's an overnight sensation
Someone everybody knows
She's an overnight sensation
Shoulda never let her go

Now I'm always writin' letters
To addresses unknown
Wish I never woulda met her
'Cause now I'm all alone
Shoulda never let her go

She's an overnight sensation
Gotta television show
All across the nation
Somebody everybody knows everybody

Now she types her own letters
And she pays the telephone
And I know where to find her
But I'd rather let it go
Yeah, I'm better off alone

She's an overnight sensation
Someone everybody knows
Now she's in all the conversation
But I'm better off alone
Better off
