My head, it hurts
Each day it's getting worse
My looks and smile
Have now become my curse
Tight lips, red skirt
The neverending street
Big car, little man
My lover for a fee

So if you see me will you just drive on by
Or will I catch the twinkle inside you're eye
And if you want me ,well, I guess I want you
Oh pretty baby how could you?

Standing in the rain
Milk carton mug-shot baby
Missing since 1983
Standing in the rain
20 years of dirty needles
Raindrops runnin' through my veins

My head it hurts
Each day it's getting worse
No sun, my room
Has now become my herse
Cold sores, im beat
Got bruises on my feet
My pride, these men
Have taken it from me

So if you see me will you just drive on by
Or will I catch the twinkle inside you're eye
And if you want me ,well, I guess I want you
Oh pretty baby how could you?

Standing in the rain
Milk carton mug-shot baby
Missing since 1983
Standing in the rain
20 years of dirty needles
Raindrops runnin'through my veins

Standing in the rain
Milk carton mug-shot baby
Missing since 1983
Standing in the rain
20 years of dirty needles
Raindrops runnin' through my veins

So if you see me will you just drive on by Or will I catch the twinkle inside you're eye
And if you want me ,well, I guess I want you
Oh pretty baby how could you?

Standing in the rain
Standing in the rain
Standing in the rain
Milk carton mug-shot baby
Mother, I have lost my way
Standing in the rain
Milk carton mug-shot baby
Missing since 1983
Standing in the rain
20 years of dirty needles
Raindrops runnin' though my veins
Standing in the rain
Mother, I have lost my way
Standing in the rain
Mother, I have lost my way

    This song... Has a great melody, but unfortunately it's about a hooker. She apparently went missing in 1983, and was found as a prostitute after 20 years of doing drugs, and it describes how beat up she was from all of her "clients". Raindrops refer to some sort of injection into her bloodstream. Sorry for the harsh truth. I still like this song.
