Roches – The Scorpion Lament lyrics

Stood on the street the other night
In full moonlight
Barefoot and oh dirtied
My dress was goin' away

There I was meetin' up with a man
For the payoff
Faithful and unhenpecked
I somewhat recollect

Soon she heard me
Siren she wailed
Queen Spelling Bee she nailed me
By name

It's not allright with me

What am I doin' out on the street?
I'm ashamed dear
Good boy he beats it
I tear myself downtown

God has let me release a sting
In my own eye
Walk home to just nightmares
No angels on the phone
