Karen Elson – Pretty Babies lyrics
Got me hanging on a string, honey
Got me hanging for dear life
Mama told me not to be so bold
And now I'm paying a heavy price

I fell head first into the fire
What a foolish thing to do
Gambled every bit of sense I had
And now I've lost it all to you

All to you
You take my breath
My last request
Is that you will always love me the best
So all your pretty babies can have the last laugh I guess
Still I'm hanging on a string, honey
Still I'm hanging on a string

Oohh
Ooh la la la
Oooh
Ooh la la la

Out on the streets the bells are ringing
A sad and sorry, lonesome tune
I watched the faces as they pass me by
I'm hoping that I'll see you

I call your phone, it's disconnected
Yeah it somehow no longer stands
Guess the devil came and took you back
And now your life is in his hands

All to you
You take my breath
My last request
Is that you will always love me the best
So all your pretty babies can have the last laugh I guess
Still I'm hanging on a string, honey
Still I'm hanging on a string
