Your mama was a picture girl
in a ten dollar magazine;
she's been all around the world
in a long black limousine.

and she will always be.

Oh, picture girl
just what happened to your world?
Did you lose your place to another face

Your mama was a picture girl.

Everybody's seen your face on that TV,
everybody's seen you on that screen;
now someone's making up stories
just to sell their magazine.

Oh picture girl...
