Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows that baby's got new clothes
Lately I see her ribbons and her bows
And the problems from her curls

Ah, she takes just like a woman
And she makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Queen Mary, she's my friend
I believe, I'll go see her again
Then nobody has to guess that baby can't be blessed
Till she finds out that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls

Ah, she takes just like a woman, yes, she does
And she makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Oh, it was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse is this pain in here
I can't stay in here, ain't it clear

Oh, I just can't fit
I believe it's time for us to quit
Then when we meet again and introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world

Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
And you make love just like a woman, yes, you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl

You break just like a little girl
You break just like a little girl
