  • Daddy called her Billie Jean
    Said the ground glowed where she walked
    Kept the bottles out of reach
    The demons underground
    But she stands a little taller now
    When she surveys her memory
    It was always how she did
    Never how she was
    Oh she was
    Yes she was
    She was twisted
    She was angry
    She was human
    And almost sixteen

    Nobody knows anybody
    It's just hookers and bandits along the road
    If you see me walking away
    I just called to say “hello”.

    Daddy hung the moon
    From a twist of fishing wire
    Now the wire's wearing thin
    While daddy's wearing out
    And the people say I should have known him
    Back in the motor days
    Always with a helping hand
    It's the kind of man he was
    Oh he was
    Yes he was
    He was foolish
    And he was working
    He was human
    And almost sixty
    So goodnight Billie.
