The jigolo's jumpin salty


ain't no trade out on the streets


half past the unlucky


and the hawk's a front-row seat


dressed in full orquestration


stage door johnnys got to pay


and sent him home 


talking bout the one that got away


could a been on easy street


could a been a wheel


with irons in the fire 


and all them business deals


But the last of the big-time losers 


shouted before he drove away


I'll be right back as soon as I crack 


the one that got away


the ambulance drivers don't give a shit


they just want to get off work


and the short stop and the victim 


have already gone berserk


and the shroud-tailor measures him 


for a deep-six holiday


the stiff is froze, the case is closed 


on the one that got away


Jim Crow's directing traffic 


with them cemetery blues


with them peculiar looking trousers


them old Italian shoes


the wooden kimona was all ready 


to drop in San Francisco Bay


but now he's mumbling something 


all about the one that got away


Costello was the champion 


at the St. Moritz Hotel


and the best this side of Fairfax, 


reliable sources tell


but his reputation is at large


and he's at Ben Frank's every day


waiting for the one that got away


he's got a snake skin sportshirt, 


and he looks like Vincent Price


with a little piece of chicken 


and he's carving off a slice


but someone tipped her off 


she'll be doing a Houdini now any day


she shook his hustle


and a Greyhound bus'll 


take the one that got away


Andre is at the piano 


behind the Ivar in the sewers


with a buck a shot for pop tunes, 


and a fin for guided tours


He could of been in Casablanca


he stood in line out there all day


but now he's spilling whiskey 


and learning songs about a one that got away


well I've lost my equilibrium 


my car keys and my pride


tattoo parlor's warm 


and so I huddle there inside


the grinding of the buzz saw


whatchuwanthathingtosay


just don't misspell her name


buddy she's the one that got away
