The Trouble With Sweeney – Evelyn Rochman lyrics

The Penguin Cafe Orchestra plays soft
In the apartment of Evelyn Rochman
Just a Jewish girl from just south of New York
And when my stepmother was not lookin'
She introduced me - to the modern love
'cuz the old one just tore me apart -
Why can't we come and go like we please?
You don't have to finish everything you start

The punkest moment in the life of Evelyn Rochman
Was the night she went home with Richard Hell
They did cocaine under the Soho stars
There was so much more kiss than tell
She introduced me - to the Modern Lovers
Every time, those songs still tear me apart
Why can't we come and go like we please?
You don't have to finish everything you start

Introduce me, yeah
Introduce me, yeah
'cuz I have so much to say
And the bowry seems so far away
But I'm turning seventeen next wednesday, I'm so excited I could die
And I know you are my dad's wife's friend
And in our age, there's a difference of ten
But you've given me this crazy kind of confidence, I don't know why
Introduce me, yeah (yeah! )
Introduce me, yeah - yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

The Penguin Cafe Orchestra plays soft
In the apartment of Evelyn Rochman
Just a Jewish girl from just south of New York
And when my stepmother was not lookin'
