Loudon Wainwright III – New Paint lyrics

At the station you can meet her
With that smile you couldn’t cheat her
A woman that kind is hard to find

It’s good to take a girl
In the not so very good world
And walk in the park until it gets dark

Sometimes I feel ugly and old
Excuse me, baby, if I’m acting bold
My head gets hot but my feet aren’t cold
Excuse me if you will

Take a breather on a bench
Helps to build up the suspense
Then the two of you go to a movie show

If she’s a woman there’s a chance
That she maybe likes to dance
So you go to the hall and you out step ‘em all

Don’t make a hullabaloo, I’m not the hoi polloi
I’ll try any trick and I’ll pull any ploy
I’m a used up twentieth century boy
Excuse me if you will

She takes you home to meet the folks
Laughing at the fathers jokes
Shall we watch tv? It’s all right with me

Time to go, you’re going to miss her
In the doorway try to kiss her
Oh, it tastes so good like you hoped it would

If I was 16 again I’d give my eyetooth
I’m tired and I’m hungry and I’m looking for my youth
I’m a little uncool and I’m a little uncouth
Oh, excuse me, yes, excuse me if you will

At the station you can meet her
With that smile you couldn’t cheat her
A woman that kind is hard to find
