Rasputina – Any Old Actress lyrics

They saw her break through barriers forty feet high
It was the finest moment in a long life
Young boys would hang her pictures over their bed
They saw her mouth move but they couldn't hear what she said
You're a souvenir a darling dear
She used to say that kind of thing
You're a mantlepiece with strong beliefs
Only her black rainbow meant something
Don't cry for her now
Oh yeah
Don't cry for her
Oh yeah
I saw the sailor talking with the cops
I saw the sailor walking with the cops
First comes the nurse, just got back from war
She had a feather in her cap
That's all she wore
Then comes the mother and she's got a friend
And they start yelling at you and that's how it all began
It's one of those things you should not try at home
What's meant by intentional falls can never be known
Any old actress worth her salt outta know
The higher you are you want to see what's below
And old actress worth her salt outta know
The higher you are you want to see what's below
And old actress worth her salt outta know
