Ten Girls Ago

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Struck by Lightning (1991).

Buster turned round to me And said hey kid you must be joking
You got an attitude You think you're funny but you're choking hey hey
Back every word that comes out of your mouth (Ten girls ago)
You thought you had something to laugh about

But it was just a crazy thing
The wrong act in the wrong circus ring
The sweet pain of a needle's sting
Ten girls ago, ten girls ago

Eddie and Burt sneaked out the back
And threw up before every scene
The camera rolled and my life
Flashed before me just as if in a dream
A dog was leading me round on a chain Ten girls ago
I kicked it but I ended up in pain

But it was just a crazy thing
Flying an airplane made of string
Sweet pain of a needle's sting
Ten girls ago

Wrap it up in a paper cup
Put it in a bag for me
Get yourself another dog
Ah you're barking up the wrong tree

And now I stand a hope in hell
Of not ending up in the bottom of a well
A place where all lost souls must go
When they don't know where their life is going
And now life glows with a life of its own Ten girls ago
I would have told you my chances were blown

But it was just a crazy thing
The wrong act in the wrong circus ring
The sweet pain of a needle's sting
Ten girls ago, ten girls ago

But it was just a crazy thing
Flying an airplane made of string
Sweet pain of a needle's sting
Ten girls ago
