Dolls (Sweet Rock And Roll)

This song is by Primal Scream and appears on the album Riot City Blues (2006).

Saw you walking down the street
Holding hands with some other guy
Well a short skin suit, black patent leather boots
Big brown round saucer eyes, that's right!
I didn't talk to you then, you was kissing your friend
Besides, it was the wrong time and place
I went home, took a shower, met a lady
I got some flowers but shows ya hey I knew we'd meet again

Don't want your diamonds, don't want your gold
I want your love, I want your soul, come on babe
Let's have a good time! Let's have a good time!
Let's have a good time! Let's have a good time!

So I searched all over town, dudes hanging around
No one had ever seen a chick like you before
I hit strip joints and museums, bars and clubs and Jesus
I even prayed in a cathedral for your soul
Then one rainy winter Tuesday, I saw you on the subway
You were heading for the tunnel near the door
I pressed my face against the glass, you sped by me in a flash
Like a motorcycle crash you smoked my skull

Don't want your diamonds, don't want your gold
I want your love, I want your soul, come on babe
Let's have a good time! Let's have a good time!
Let's have a good time! Let's have a good time!

So once again, walking in the pouring rain
Wondering who and why and where and what you were
I had hallucinatory dreams, shivers, sweats and screams
Like an opium withdrawal, only worse
Then on one hot summer night I took a motorcycle ride
Saw you looking really evil, spitting fire from your eyes
Like a rockabilly queen 'bout to kick start your machine
Like a fighter pilot flying off to war
You had a tight black leather jacket, skull and crossbones on the back
God bless the sould of sweet Gene Vincent, there you were!

Don't want your diamonds, don't want your gold
I want your love, I want your soul, come on babe
Let's have a good time! Let's have a good time!
Let's have a good time! Let's have a good time!
