Once knew a girl, name was Barbara
Cutest little muffin you have ever seen
Livin' in St. Louis at Chase Hotel
And she lived there with her mommy and her daddy
And her little brother, Skipper who was just thirteen
(Just thirteen)

She went to church every morning
Said her prayers real loud every night
She was the best little girl in the whole damn town
(Watch it devil)
But you know I'm right , you know I'm right

One morning in the lobby, I whispered in her ear
"Honey, it's too hot today to go to school
Whyn't you call up the cute little lifeguard?
He's out by the hotel pool"

They drank all her daddy's whiskey
They took all her mama's pills
They were found the next day drowned in their own vomit
Poor little fool, poor little fool
