Caroline Was A Drop-Out

This song is by Kid Creole and the Coconuts and appears on the album In Praise of Older Women and Other Crimes (1985).

I would like to introduce you to a friend of mine (Caroline)
When I knew her, she was younger, what then so was I (Caroline)
Lazy child, she was always broken for the girls who worked out on her live
She said that she survived, but instead she's grown in anger
Maybe got something to do with the fact that,

Caroline - she was an outcast, a zip-off of a badass
Caroline - she was a drop-out a fallen out drop-out
Drop-out, drop-out, drop-out (bis)

If you wonder, here's a portrait of a wasted mind (Caroline)
Don't condemn her, don't command her
Don't give pearls to swines (Caroline)
Manged child, now she dances at The Pussycat in other drop-out style
Somehow the girl kept slidin'
And she steady going under
Maybe got something to do with the fact that,

Caroline - she was an outcast, a zip-off of a badass
Caroline - she was a drop-out a fallen out drop-out
Drop-out, drop-out, drop-out (bis)

She had the tendency
To blame society
I got no sympathy
She had the same opportunities as me

Caroline, Caroline,

Crazy child, she could find sort of a company, I'm simplest of the guys
And she was once in style, oh but now she's won a brother
Maybe got something to do with the fact that,

Caroline - she was an outcast, a zip-off of a badass
Caroline - she was a drop-out a fallen out drop-out
Drop-out, drop-out, drop-out (bis)

She had the tendency
To blame society
I got no sympathy
She had the same opportunities as me

Oh Caroline was a drop-out
