Only a Woman

                                                She was as beautiful
                                                as only a woman
                                                made for dirt
                                                can be

Til the Money Runs Out

                              The pointed man is smack dab in the middle of July
                              Swingin from the rafters in his brand new tie
                              He said i can't go back to that hotel room
                              All they do is shout
                              But i'll stay wichew baby til the money runs out
                              So bye bye baby baby bye bye
