Black and blue from passing around
Whitey says the lady ain't a hit no more
Cecelia amanda i don't wanna see you get like you got before
Another patient in a party dress yesterday
Dancing on a remenant scratch
In a place where lonely men pay to make their opposites match
Little miss amanda wants to know how long you're going to be gone
But she asked me can i fix it so your record plays the rest of her song
'cause every rememberance of you has been buried below
Every memory that i unhappily know
I'm sorry for you and your kid
The things you promised that you never did
She asked me are you a pretty dancer
But i don't think i'm gonna answer
Black and blue from passing around
Whitey sent you back to the daily score
But you got a little baby now
I don't wanna see you around here no more
Amanda put on a new party dress
Dancing to a record you scratched
With some dealing amateur actor making opposites match
