You've Let Yourself Go - Live - Charles Aznavour

It's funny, when I look at you
When not a single word is said
I know, I had a drink or two
But that's not what's gone to my head
I laugh and I recall our youth

It's funny when I look at you
When not a single word is said
I know, I had a drink or two
But that's not what's gone to my head
I laugh and I recall our youth
Perhaps you'll say that I'm uncouth
But it's high time you knew the truth
About the way you make me feel
And what the future holds in store
For I can't stand it anymore

Why should I even try and hide
Whatever I may feel inside?
You lie, you curse and you provoke
And then you treat it as a joke
You know at times you go too far?
Even in front of all my friends
How could we hope to make amends?
You know that you've let yourself go

You look a sight
Sure you look great
Your stocking seams not even straight
In that old faded dressing gown
Your hair in curlers, hanging down
What could I have been thinking of?
Was it with you I fell in love?
Are you the girl that could inspire
A heart with passion and desire?
I gaze at you in sheer despair
And see your mother standing there

In front of strangers you're the same
You don't mind putting me to shame
You contradict each word I say
Why you would turn night into day?
You like to hurt me when you can
I'm just a rag and not your man
I hit the jackpot, yes, I know
You know that you've let yourself go

At times you're cruel beyond control
Have you no heart?
Have you no soul?
And as I take a look at life
I, I realize that you're my wife
A little effort, not much more
And things could be just as before
You know, you'd lose a little weight
If you would watch all that you ate

A little style, a little grace
And try to show a smiling face
I couldn't hate you, if I tried
I really want you by my side
So try, try and be the girl I knew
Let's really start our love anew

I want to hold you in my arms
And then surrender to your charms
Let there be fire, not just a glow
Come close to me
Let yourself go
