Written by: lenny kravitz

She was only seventeen
In her prime of life she was lean
And her only dream was to be on the silver screen
She hailed from north of baltimore
Her mama says she'd end up a whore
And she spent up all her dough at the movie show
She's all go go go yeah yeah
She wears her pants on her hips too low
She learned it all in magazines
She's magdalene
Ain't it funny how the sun shines?
She was only seventeen
She packed her bag and went to the scene
She said I'm gonna take on this town I'm gonna be the queen
She mingled like she'd been there before
She worked it till they hollered for more
Then she took off all her clothes
Now everbody knows
She's all go go go yeah yeah
She wears her pants on her hips too low
She learned it all in magazines
She's magdalene
Ain't it funny how the sun shines?
