She's only a girl
With a voice peculiar
And eyes a strange hue
She's born to wilful
Tried to help her some
But she's impervious to change

She dresses in black tar
All of the time
Wears an old green shoe
Some sore of uglification thing
That she's into

She's a hundred and ten
Maybe five foot five
She don't eat meat
But she'll eat you alive
She's only a girl
But she's big time

She's only a girl
That I'll tell you about
At least all that I know
She's from South Carolina
She came out here a few years ago

She waits on tables
And she works in a bank
Volunteers at the zoo
She sure ain't lazy
She's very young
That's why I called you
She's only a girl

Well now men you seen her
What'd you think
Awh haw
I thought you'd say that
Go ahead
Of course I know
No you're wrong there
Now listen

Love is blind
And just as well
Now look mister
Can't you tell
She's only a girl 
And she loves me

Why would someone 
As beautiful as she
Love someone
Old like me
Maybe it's the money
Jes I never thought of that
Believe it or not
What a horrible thought

God damn
