(I was hiding in the bathroom for a few minutes peace from my family.  I saw "Water for Elephants" on my bathroom shelf. A few hours later, Suzanne came to life.) 

Lyrics

Suzanne ran away with the circus  
When she was forty- three    
Misses her kids occasionally    
As she swings on her trapeze 
 
But she doesn’t miss washing dishes
As she flies through the air   
With the breeze in her hair    
Devil may care   
 
But you can’t have everything   
Everything, everything, no you can’t
You can’t have everything, everything
Can you Suzanne   
 
She fell pretty hard for a carnie    
On the train to Tucumcari    
Where she wished she wasn’t married   
Just for a night
 
Cause she couldn’t resist when he kissed her   
Just a little longer    
Just a little wronger    
Than she knew was right
 
But you can’t have everything   
Everything, everything, no you can’t
You can’t have everything, everything
Can you Suzanne   
 
But sometimes it’s the dreams that get you through   
All the hardest things you have to do   
 
Suzanne came back home from the circus     
When she was forty-four   
Knowing she’d miss her family more
She let go and fell to the floor  
 
She'll never like washing dishes   
But at night when no ones there     
She’ll feel the breeze in her hair      
Devil may care
 
But you can’t have everything
Everything, everything, no you can’t
You can’t have everything, everything
Can you Suzanne
