American Aquarium – Downtown Girls lyrics
[Verse 1]
Downtown girls look pretty in the bar lights
Downtown girls look pretty after hours
They look like trouble and they taste like gin
But they smell like dogwood flowers

[Verse 2]
Downtown girls, man, they're all the same at heart
They're just goin' through the motions
They'll call you handsome if you buy them a drink
They're as empty as a Valentine's Day without the roses

[Chorus]
Downtown girls are gonna hurt you
They only care about themselves
Downtown girls are gonna desert you
And leave you feelin' sorry for yourself

[Verse 3]
A downtown girl's like a card game
She can bluff a mean twenty-one
I'd sneak her in to all my favorite bars
She can lie to your face through a smile, oh I should've seen it comin'

[Chorus]
Downtown girls are gonna hurt you
They only care about themselves
Downtown girls are gonna desert you
And leave you feelin' sorry for yourself

[Verse 4]
A downtown girl, man, she could have been the one
If it was only me she'd chosen
She's got these eyes that can turn stars to stone
The only problem is she knows it

[Chorus]
Downtown girls are gonna hurt you
They only care about themselves
Downtown girls are gonna desert you
And leave you feelin' sorry for yourself

[Chorus]
Downtown girls are gonna hurt you
They only care about themselves
Downtown girls are gonna desert you
And leave you feelin' sorry for yourself

Aw yeah well...
