(Here's another one, with some of the in-process editing or re-writing. First, the version I worked with, moving forward.

She's A Hanger On.
I let her hang around.
She's as good as gone.
She's never let me down. (I started with "She's never let me down" and tried "You know she's never let me down.")
She's a Hanger On.
I like having her around.

She's a white gold girl.
She got silver everywhere.
She's a righteous girl.
It's not as good when she's not there.
She's A Hanger On.
I like having her around. (I kept repeating this Line, but thought Verses II and III should have their own Line, keeping with the Rhyme-Scheme.)

(Later I tried, "I like her enough to share" and "She likes me well enough to share" and "Ones like her are rather rare", but wasn't satisfied with those Lines.)
She's that kind of girl,
like you hear about in songs,
from a different world.
Somehow tonight she got it wrong.
She's A Hanger On.
I like having her around.

She's A Hanger On.
I let her hang around.

(Then I found Lines I liked, in the Rhyme-Scheme, and coherent (If that word applies to a somewhat poetically vague Lyric) in the theme or storyline.)

She's A Hanger On.
I let her hang around.
She's as good as gone.
I know she's never let me down.
She's a Hanger On.
I like having her around.

She's a white gold girl.
She got silver everywhere.
She's a righteous girl.
It's not as good when she's not there.
She's A Hanger On.
She's a little worse for wear.

She's that kind of girl,
like you hear about in songs,
from a different world.
Somehow tonight she got it wrong.
She's A Hanger On.
She's right where she belongs.

She's A Hanger On.
I let her hang around.
She's as good as gone.
I know she's never let me down.
She's a Hanger On.
I like having her around.

She's A Hanger On.
I let her hang around.
