Soi Cowboy

This song is by The Getaway People and appears on the album The Turnpike Diaries (2000).

She was the apple of her father's eye
Nobody told her expectations were way too high
Paying her dues in a sleazy go-go bar
It's like butterfly stuck in a jar

Soi cowboy with a pocket full of dollars
Cheap lipstick on his collar but he don't care
She's just a Thai girl with a head full of dreams
But lemme tell you, honey, that nothing's what it seems

Oh no, she's just a Thai girl
That's not all she is
She's just a Thai girl

He said he'd make of her an honest girl
That they would get away and see the world some day
But there's a problem with a pearls and grand [unverified]
Well, at the oyster there's a grain of sand

Soi cowboy with a pocket full of dollars
Cheap lipstick on his collar but he don't care
She's just a Thai girl with a head full of dreams
But lemme tell you, honey, that nothing's what it seems

Oh no, she's just a Thai girl
That's all she is
She's just a Thai girl
(Unverified)

If you think that it is true love he is looking for, looking for
Can't you see that the only thing he'll ever be, ever be?

A soi cowboy with a pocket full of dollars
Cheap lipstick on his collar but he don't care
She's just a Thai girl with a head full of dreams
But lemme tell you, honey, that nothing's what it seems

Soi cowboy with a pocket full of dollars
Cheap lipstick on his collar but he don't care
She's just a Thai girl with a head full of dreams
But lemme tell you, honey, let me tell you, honey
Let me tell you, honey, nothing's what it seems
