She’s not the kind of girl
Who’s lacking for much
When it comes to gettin’ , honey, she’s got the touch.
Even though she earns every Penney she gets
Some people know how to make the most of it.
…and every single evening when the work day is through,
She sits at her piano and she thinks of
She’s got a brand new dress from the five and dime,
Ruby red lips and a glass of wine..
She’s unplugged the TV and the telephone…
No need in feeling lonely- but the girl’s all alone.
She doesn’t need a savior to be born again.
She doesn’t need a knight to come charging in..
But she thinks she felt a miracle in the palm of your hand…
That once in a lifetime harmony only two can understand.
It’s a shame that someone’s locked you up and hidden the key ..
‘cause from where I stand on Fourth Street, it sure looks like love to me.
She’s got a brand new dress from the five and dime..
Ruby red lips and a glass of wine.
She’s unplugged the TV and the telephone….
No need in feeling lonely, but the girl’s all alone.
You have to see the sense of humor in this twisted twist of fate.
Did you ever find the hacksaw she hid in your birthday cake ?
Are wrestling with your conscience with what is wrong or right ?
Are you sawing away at the prison bars and breaking out tonight ?
You know you’re just a few blocks from absolutely free….
and from where I stand on Fourth Street, it sure looks like love to me.
