She looked at me with dignity,said...
"There's something you got to see...
If you know we're headed for war
This country's prouder than ever before...
Yes,there's a spirit in the air
We're more American than anywhere..."
Well I just smiled,'cause I could tell
This little girl's going to hell
Now I wouldn't mind
If you swallowed my pride
Would make me feel alright
Deep inside,feel alright...
All the warmth in her heart
Can't keep my blood from running cold
Keep my blood from running cold
First I fell for her looks
Now I just wanna go for the throat
I tried to tell her a hundred times
This little girl didn't understand at all
Pride comes before a fall...
Now I wouldn't mind
If you swallowed my pride
Make me feel alright
Deep inside,feel alright...
Ohhh...
This ain't the Garden of Eden
This ain't the summer of love
Things ain't what they used to be
There ain't no angels above
Whoa...
Ain't the Garden of Eden
Ain't no angels above
Things ain't what they used to be
This ain't the summer of love
