han in the afternoon she come around she give you aptitude and screw you down then she as sweet as pie
then she no wanna lie
then you don't wanna die
please tell me why
she gonna stay until
she take all you do
she got nothin' from you just yet she got somethin' from you
young hot matt diamond shine like pretty foil
she grease you up real good with horno oil
this dog howl at this tune dance in the midnite moon to a bo dibly tune
as i recoil
she got a rabid smile and a heart black
as a crocodile
in a cadillac
got a phony diamond stud crammed into her nose whistle a snappy tune when she gotta blow
she gonna eat your heart and swallow it down
chase it with your sorrow when the drugs come around she gonna lose her soul
in a sad frowny frown
chase it with rock and roll when the drugs come to town shitty loves her drugs
bye baby bye bye
ba da da da da da die
da da da da da die
