String Pull Job

This song is by John Hiatt and appears on the album Two Bit Monsters (1980).

Bring it in tight and cut to her face
Fade up the lights till it wipes out the place
Put on your pants 'cause she's put out a trace on you

She's found a future it's been localized

Brought out the sutures and clamps for your eyes
Made the incision and no one's surprised but you

String pull job
Nobody's finer
She's got you sewn up
With the one-liners
She's doin' that jerk
She's doin' that jerk
She's pulling it tighter

You aim the projector away from the screen
It doesn't affect her she's seen through the scene
Throwin' out lines till she finds one that means you'll do

You're thinking of sins so you can confess

But who's gonna come in and clean up the mess
When she takes a bow and you take off the dress Ooh ooh

String pull job
Nobody's finer
She's got you sewn up
With the one-liners
She's doin' that jerk
She's doin' that jerk
She's pulling it tighter

String pull job
String pull job
String pull job
String pull job
Jerk, jerk, jerk, jerk
