​Any Old Actress

This song is by Rasputina and appears on the album Thanks For The Ether (1996).

They saw her break through barriers forty feet high
It was the finest moment in a long life
Young boys will tack her picture over their bed
They saw her mouth move but couldn't hear what she said

You're a souvenir, a darling dear
She used to say that kind of thing
You're a mantlepiece with strong beliefs
Only her black rainbow meant something

Don't cry for her now
Oh yeah
Don't cry for her
Oh yeah

I saw the sailor talkin' with the cops
I saw the sailor walkin' with the cops
First comes the nurse, just got back from war
She had a feather in her cap
That's all she wore
Then comes the mother, and she's got a friend
They start yelling at you and that's how this all began

It's one of those things you should not try at home
What's meant by intentional falls can never be known
Any old actress worth her salt oughtta know
The higher you are you want to see what's below
Any old actress worth her salt oughtta know
The higher you are you want to see what's below
Any old actress worth her salt oughtta know
