For a new female fronted band he's starting. I wrote these on the spot for him yesterday. Feel free to comment/complain/nitpick.

 

 

I Can Be Your Patty Hearst

 

V1

romance ain't always pretty

and it certainly ain't cheap

if you try and whisper sweet things

you'll whisper me to sleep

boy, you better keep watch on your little world

if i catch you running round with another girl

 

V2

you're not gonna get to touch this

walkin' round in that drug store tie

i like boys who like to break things

not those pale volkswagon guys

only a fascist is interested in keeping a tidy house

{censored} the trap -- i'm building a better mouse

 

CHORUS:

i ain't your "be my baby"

and i ain't your sweet chiffon

so what -- yer not the SLA

but, baby, i can be your Patty Hearst

 

V1 (Repeat)

romance ain't always pretty

and it certainly ain't cheap

if you try and whisper sweet things

you'll whisper me to sleep

boy, you better keep watch on your little world

if i catch you running round with another girl

 

CHORUS:

i ain't your "be my baby"

and i ain't your sweet chiffon

so what -- yer not the SLA

but, baby, i can be your Patty Hearst

Eightball Vixen

 

V1

i was a awkward teenage vixen

real fond of those neighbor boys

i'd ask em to come and stop in

but they were so busy with their guitars and their noise

 

V2

i asked my sister judy

how i might someday get some play

she said you gotta know the future

you gotta know just what those boys will say

 

she said --

 

CHORUS:

get an eightball, sister

get a magic one at that

check that magic eightball, sister

you'll learn just where it's at

 

V3

that eightball was the answer

i'm out most every evening

with bobby, scott, and tony

but it just don't feel like that real love thing

 

V4

i'm gonna crack that eight-ball open

i'm gonna that blue stuff down

i might still be heartbroken

but least the room'll be spinnin' round

 

she said --

 

CHORUS:

get an eightball, sister

get a magic one at that

check that magic eightball sister

you'll learn just where it's at
