Waterboys – All The Boys Love Carrie lyrics

All the boys love Carrie
But Carrie doesn't love the boys
She drinks and she talks
She takes cigarettes from strangers
Anything else she's an x-rated baby
Out of bounds

All the boys love Carrie!
They watch her over cider and whiskey
Take her outside, show her their cars, invite her thru to the cocktail bar
But Carrie's shy, she don't talk much
She keeps her secrets locked inside
Out of bounds

I saw her today in her green coat
I know she's going... Uptown downtown!
She's gotta run 'cause it's getting late
What can she do when her world blows open in her face?

All the boys love Carrie but
Carrie doesn't love the boys
