Graham Parker Local Girls Lyrics

Last updated: 09/23/2014 05:23:43 PM

Sit about my window and look outside
Wonder why the sun don't shine on me
What's wrong with you, you stupid child
Don't you think that I'm the one you're waitin' to see?
Don't talk too much cuz she falls for the suckas
Makes her feel everything is secure
Don't ever leave a footprint on her ...

(Chorus)
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls

(Verse 2)
She's probably half-wit, she must be straight
Or bound to have a mother who knows nothin' but hate
Don't wanna luv, I'd rather knock her down
Standin' at the bus stop where she waits each mornin'
So isolated that she thinks that the army is the place where a man oughta be
Don't bother with them, they don't bother ...

(Chorus)
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls

(Verse 3)
They got the walk, they got the talk
Right down without a flaw
At 6 o'clock, I got to stop
My dreamin' at the counter of the store
Don't bother with them

(Instrumental break)

(Verse 4)
Without a doubt I got to intercept
Must have someone ran and shouted in their ear
You look all right in the cheap print dress, but every time you swish it round you make me disappear
Yes, I'm aware of exactly what I'm doin'
Makin' everythin' a mystery
Don't bother with it, it don't bother me

(Chorus x2)
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with the local girls
Don't bother with them, they don't bother me
