Graham Parker The Girl Isn’t Ready Lyrics

Pre>intro
A f#m
The girl isn't ready (twice)

A f#m
The girl isn't ready is what her mother says
A f#m
We just put her toys away it seems like yesterday
E d
She has seen something better through the window
E d
She will reach for it even though she doesn't know if she's

Chorus
A f#m
Ready, the girl isn't ready
A f#m
We can never tell her how to take it steady
A e d a
She'll be re a dy one day I know
A f#m
The girl isn't ready (twice)

The girl isn't ready to do what she wants to do
We think that her boyfriend's like something from a zoo
She thinks that she understands what she's feeling
She's going to leave us make no mistake the wounds won't be healing

Chorus then instrumental over e d e d f#m f#m

The girl isn't ready sure she thinks she is
She walks like a grownup but talks just like a kid
She wants to take on the world and his brother
Next thing you know she'll be telling us that she's a mother

Outro - as intro w/ more repeats /pre>
