Lyrics

[ Album Art ]

[ Safe As Milk Album Art ]

silver spoon in her hand
she'll skim the fat off a foreign land
steal the dreams off the back
of the common man
she's a climber, a two-timer too
stoned mind, heart of steel
she'll take for granted everything you feel
fake love with you tonight
and tomorrow say "that was yesterday"
she's a taker, she's a faker too
i couldn't buy what she had in store
now i cannot play in her game anymore

what girl wants, girl gets
but this girl ain't got nothing yet
boy loves, boy dreams
boy gives, she takes to extremes

she's a liar, she'll retire you

what girl wants, girl gets
but this girl ain't got nothing yet
boy loves, boy dreams
what boy gives, she'll take to extremes

girl wants, girl takes
girl splits and the poor hearts break
i want never gets
but this girl doesn't get it yet
