lyrics

when he walked in his eyes were shining
shining like a gun
his swagger was a force of nature
humbling everyone

his mouth was on his cigarette
his hand was on her leg
he hit her like an avalanche
he hit her like the plague

he said hey now honey, you look so pretty
do you wanna go home with me
she said no, but maybe you could give me a lift
he’s no good and she oughtta know better
but she don’t know it yet
and oh, to know him, she’ll die a little death

when she got in her heart was beating
like a baseball bat
it churned her blood to buttermilk
it fought her like a cat

his hands were on the steering wheel
her eyes were on his face
and grinning like a criminal
he drove her to her place

he said hey now honey, you look so pretty
will you let me go home with you
she said no, but her whole body said yes
he’s no good and she oughtta know better
but she don’t know it yet
and oh, to know him, she’ll die a little death

when they got out the air was heavy
heavy as a sin
it filled her head like bourbon
and she asked him to come in

he took her like a devil
there was venom on his breath
she bit in like an apple
and she died a little death

he said hey now honey, you look so pretty
but i gottta be someplace
she said no, baby don’t leave me like this
he’s no good and she shoulda known better
but she don’t know it yet
and oh, to know him, she died a little death
