A Way II

availability The Best of the Bolshoi
written by Tanner (©1987 Beggars Banquet)

We're in love, lets speed together
Happy times or heavy weather?
Mother says "Today's a special day"
So lets not fight, O-K, yeah.
When you were at school you were a honey
The boys all loved you - you loved their money
The boys would stare - you'd cross your legs
And then you'd toss your hair
A Way
Yes, you get by

Money's scarce, but family honour
Brings it home, brings it home
And down the shop, the tongues they snicker
TV dinners - beer and liquorrrrr, yeah
Skeletons fall out of cupboards
Curtains drawn - fall open - to allow
The light - shows up the dust
That plays around your face
A Way
Yes you get by

Innocence and lies don't make the perfect match
Leave your door unlatched
I know a word can be untrue, yet still move you
And all the time they'd bring their friends 'round
Dress you up, show you up
And all the time they told you it was true
well I'll believe you now
but then I just don't know I
think I'd have to reconsider, yeah
I know when she got married
She looked fine in white and lacy frills
Oh yeah she had a baby
It was painful
It was worth it
And all the time they stuck the knife in
Pulled it up and twist it around
A Way
Yes you get by
A Way - yes you get by
Well that's fine, fine, fine

AwaaaAAAAAaaaYYYYYYYyyyyy! and liquorrrrr provided by gravity mushroom
