​The Girl Isn't Ready

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album The Mona Lisa's Sister (1988).

The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready is what her mother says
We just put her toys away it seems like yesterday
She has seen something better through the window
She will reach for it even though she doesn't know if she's

Ready, the girl isn't ready
We can never tell her how to take it steady
She'll be ready one day I know

The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready to do what she wants to do
We think that her boyfriend's like something from a zoo
She thinks that she understands what she's feeling
She's going to leave us make no mistake the wounds won't be healing

Ready, the girl isn't ready
Nobody can tell her how to take it steady
She'll be ready one day I know

The girl isn't ready sure she thinks she is
She walks like a grownup but talks just like a kid
She wants to take on the world and his brother
Next thing you know she'll be telling us that she's a mother

Ready, the girl isn't ready
Nobody can tell her how to take it steady
She'll be ready one day

The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready
The girl isn't ready
