Siren
music and lyrics by Joe Croker

I said, "Bury me, babe"
"Bury me, babe"
When I first seen your face
Felt like I was drugged
Told, "Smack the horse"
"Win the race"
Oh I knew
I knew you were dangerous
Yeah I did
But I thought I could keep up the pace
But you’re a siren, girl
Yeah, oh you are
You’re a siren, baby
Call an ambulance

Time seemed to melt
In the river of your lips
But then you told me,
"Lovers only kiss in the present tense"
It was clear to me you couldn’t resist
The body politic
Oh, you’re a siren, girl
Call an ambulance

Soft silk down from corn
Hair snow-speckled like grain
Sweet blackberry, blood of life
In the spring
Of all the gorgeous things
That you might have been
Oh, you’re a siren, girl
Call an ambulance

Your virtue aint nothing but jelly, girl
From all that lipstick chat
Mama’s stuff is everywhere
She leave the boys all tired and fat
On a diet of sin
You skinned the beast
And then you ... you said,
"You aint eatin’ none of that"
Oh, you’re a siren, girl
Call an ambulance

I said, "Bury me..."
