Addey

This song is by DeGarmo and Key and appears on the album This Time Thru (1978) and on the album Street Light (1986).

Addey's a cat, she's a fool
She's a star, she's a queen
She lives in a trap down on third
Never heard, never seen
Ah, she's desperate for a way to get out
But she don't know what out means
Ah, Addey, don't you be so afraid
It's not as bad as it seems

She walks cross the floor, toward the door
To the stairs, to the street
She calls up a cab for downtown
There's a man she must meet
Ah, the thought of what she's got to go through
Makes her cry to be free
Oh, Addey, wipe those tears from your eyes
You wouldn't want him to see

She puts on your face with a smile
As she walks through the door
She thinks of her folks and her home
And what she came there for
Ah, she tells the man that after this time
She won't be back for more
But he says 'Huh, Addey don't you be a fool
You've said the same thing, time and time before'

La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la

She runs down the street
In the heat, down past Nowhere Café
She drops to her knees 'neath a trees
But she don't know how to pray
Oh, Addey, there's not life in that rig
Why don't you pack it away
Trust in God for a new kind of life
Honey, He won't lead you astray

La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la

Addey's a kid, she's a fool
She's a star, she's a queen
She lives in a trap down on third
Never heard, never seen
Mmm, she's desperate for a way to get out
But she don't know what out means
Oh, Addey, don't you be so afraid
It's not as bad as it seems

La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la
