Desperada, why don't you come to your senses /
You've been out ridin' fences for so long now /
Oh and you're a hard one, but I know that you've got your reasons /
The things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow.

Don't you draw the king of diamonds girl, he'll beat you if he's able /
Nor the king of hearts is always your best bet /
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table /
But you only want the ones you can't get.

Desperada, you ain't gettin' no younger /
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home /
And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people talking /
Your prison is walking through this world all alone.
