Written by Warren Zevon 1995 Zevon Music BMI

I was getting used to you
You went and changed your tune
Now you've got me so confused
I can't tell the salt from the wound

Didn't they always used to say
A man ain't supposed to cry
I defy you to look me in the eye
And tell me you're a friend of mine

Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?

Now it seems to me you're acting strange
You treat me like a criminal
You keep telling me
I'll have to change
Baby, that would take a miracle

Didn't they always used to say
A man ain't supposed to cry
I defy you to look me in the eye
And tell me you're a friend of mine

Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?

Poisonous lookalike
Little Miss Gun-to-a-Knife fight
Poisonous lookalike
What're you trying to do?
Poisonous lookalike
Do you feel all right all right?
Poisonous lookalike
What's wrong with you?

Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
Poisonous lookalike
You're not my girl
Poisonous lookalike
What have you done with her?
