Devil Doll – Doreen lyrics

Well when I first met Doreen she was barely 17
She was drinking whiskey sours in the bar
And the way she tossed them back I nearly had a heart attack
Cause as it is I let her drive my car

We were galloping through the Burroughs like a pair of horny thoroughbreds
Until I said stop the car Doreen
And you can roll your eyes and nod but I swear that I saw God
In the moonlight on a side street in the wreckage we call Queens


Doreen, Doreen
Last night I had an awful dream
You were lying in the arms of a man I'd never seen
Come clean
Come clean

We were rolling into Cleveland in a seven seater tour van
There's 8 of us and I'm sleeping on the floor
And the guy who plays the banjo keeps on passing me the Old Crow
It multiplies my sorrow I can't take it anymore


Now I'm begging and I'm pleading, well pull over guys I'm bleeding
There's a Fina off the highway with a phone
And I'm calling you Doreen and it rings and rings and rings
Where is it that you are if you're not in our bed at home?

Chorus X2

    Devil doll - aka colleen duffy - is awesome. I spoke with her after a gig at the surly wench goth bar here in tucson. She said that getting the message out to people was the most important thing - about her music. That's what it's all about.
    Since colleen / devil doll is incredibly s*** - you could see that if you were blind - she sings about love, lust and loss involving both men and women. Doreen tells the story of a woman fiercely in love and lust with another woman - a girl if you will - who's 17. This is a kickass romp through bars and touring and what it must be like to find the most ridiculously hot grrrlll on the planet. - in my humble opinion anyhow!
    Peace - johnny.
