Bananarama – Scarlett lyrics

Girl of glamour

Scarlett never cries
She shakes her head and sighs
At all life's little mysteries
And where she fits in all of these

Her friends all ask her why
She lets the days go by
They say that Scarlett should be sinking
But they don't know just what she's thinking

She's got no money but come tomorrow
What she ain't got you know she'll borrow
Life's a game and games are for playing
So listen now to what she's saying

This is Scarlett speaking
This is my ambition
I wanna have fun while I'm still young
So you'd better listen
Captain Scarlett speaking
On a secret mission
I aim for thrills and I shoot to kill
Got no competition

Clock says half past ten
She paints her face again
The night is young and Scarlett's willing
She's heading out, she's got that feeling





Scarlett never cries
