Lyrics

Satin sheets to lie on, satin pillows to cry on, still
I’m not happy don’t you see?
Big long Cadillac tailor made’s upon my back, still
I want you to set me free
I found another man who can give more than you can
Though you’ve given me everything money can buy
But your money can’t hold me tight
Like he does on a long, long night
You know you didn’t keep me satisfied
satin sheets to lie on
(Satin pillows) satin pillows to cry on, still
I’m not happy, don’t you see?
Big long Cadillac tailor made’s upon my back, still
I want you to set me free
satin sheets to lie on
(Satin pillows) satin pillows to cry on, still
I’m not happy don’t you see?
Big long Cadillac tailor made’s upon my back, still
I want you to set me free
satin sheets to lie on
