Lyrics

Watching Nicky turn from a girl into a wife
is like watching all the life drain out of Nicky
Seventeen last June, thirty-four this May
What else can I say about you, Nicky?

Oh no she's not painting any more
Spends the evenings locked indoors, and now,
something's just not going right for Nicky. Oh yeah
Her mother said she'd mind the kid, and when it came she never did
Now you're not smiling anymore, no Nicky
Oh no no no no no no Nicky

I remember we went out and got stuck under a bridge
The kids were throwing stones at me and Nicky
If I could see her now,
I'd shout across and say, "Hey Nicky - run away, do it now Nicky"

Because she's not painting any more
She spends her evenings locked indoors, and now,
something's just not going right for Nicky. Oh yeah
Her mother said she'd mind the kid, but when it came she never did
Now you're not smiling anymore, no Nicky
Oh no no no no no no Nicky. Oh Nicky. Oh Nicky. Nicky
Mama mama mama mama mama.

Oh she's not painting any more. Spends the evenings locked indoors,
and now, something's just not going right for Nicky.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Nicky. Ma ma ma ma ma ma Nicky.
Oh whoa whoa whoa whoa oh Nicky.
Ma ma ma ma ma ma Nicky. Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah. Nicky
