Magdelina

This song is by Shovels & Rope and appears on the album Shovels & Rope (2008).

O Magdelina, have a talking to your little son
He was looking at your dirty pictures and wondering was he the only one
Whose story's a heart attack

Magdelina, do you cry when you're all alone
I wish that I could keep you but that would cheat you
You're better off on your own

Magdelina better leave the rest unsaid
'Cause there's someone else waitin' for you in your red light bed
Better spend your days making time not making mistakes
But it's alright you'll see

Miss Magdeline, I left the money on the chifarobe
And your boss downstairs under the broken chairs, with a black eye and a bloody nose
Well I told him it would be so

Magdeline you was preachin' just a-yesterday
That you was born with a money-maker, sugar, so what need do you have of me
I just wanna make it right

Magdelina better leave the rest unsaid
'Cause there's someone else waitin' for you in your red light bed
Better spend your days making time not making mistakes
But it's alright you'll see

Well that holy water burns your skin and tears you all to bits
It's a shame nobody ever steered you right
Fucked to bits all ass and tits
Well no one sees you but your baby hears you
So don't stop till you get it all

Magdelina better leave the rest unsaid
'Cause there's someone else waitin' for you in your red light bed
Better spend your days making time not making mistakes
But it's alright you'll see
It's alright you'll see
