​Purple Yesterday

This song is by Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives and appears on the album It's Not As Bad As I'm Making It Sound (2000).

She dresses funny, I don't mind, I don't mind
She sticks like honey in my mind all the time
My heart starts to palpitate
I can feel my brain deflate
I feel great, I feel great, I feel great

She dresses scary, that's all right, that's all right
Her clothes are very out of sight every night
When she walks through Harvard Square
She just lets the people stare
She don't care, she don't care, she don't care

Her hair was purple yesterday
Before she shaved it all away
She doesn't want to be beautiful
She doesn't need to be beautiful
She had a purple head of hair
But now today it isn't there
She doesn't care if she's beautiful
Your definition of beautiful

And she looks like such a fierce thing
But I know it isn't so
In her leather and her piercings
She's the sweetest thing I know

She's got a boyfriend, that's okay, that's okay
We wouldn't last more than a day anyway
But why does she affect me so
Every time she says hello
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Her hair was purple yesterday
Before she shaved it all away
She doesn't want to be beautiful
She doesn't need to be beautiful
Her hair was purple way back when
And someday it will be again
I don't care if she's beautiful
My definition of beautiful
