Melt Her Down
music and lyrics by Joe Croker

Now and then, in her I see
T
he skip and shuffle of a child
But her every word
Show how swift her mind is
And her eyes they sparkle wild
And her body, well now,
It’s all woman
Hey man, are you surprised?
So guard her well, loving angels,
When with love you melt her down

Now, heartache in love
You know I’ve had some
And tenderness with girls
Man, it’s been fun
But the only thing worth your time
Is steadfast, faithful love
Hey man, are you surprised?
So guard me well, tempting angels,
When you come to melt me down

Crown her hair with chinese tulip blossoms in spring
Tune her heart 'till it sings like a lyre
Her hopes are moist down to the core of most everything
And her dreams rush up like a fire
So guard her well, passionate angels,
When loveless lusts conspire
'Cause it don’t matter when
And it don’t matter how
You’re gonna come to melt her down

Now and then in that young woman I see
The trip and tumble of a child
But her every word
Well, it show how shrewd her mind is
And her eyes they pierce you open wide
And her body, well baby,
It’s all woman
Is any one surprised?
So guard her well, loving angels
When you come
When you come
When you come
To melt her down
