​The Scorpion Lament

This song is by The Roches and appears on the album Keep On Doing (1982).

Stood on the street the other night
In full moonlight
Barefoot and oh dirtied
My dress was goin' away

There I was meetin' up with a man
For the payoff
Faithful and unhenpecked
I somewhat recollect

Soon she heard me
Siren she wailed
Queen Spelling Bee she nailed me
By name

It's not all right with me

What am I doin' out on the street?
I'm ashamed dear
Good boy he beats it
I tear myself downtown

God has let me release a sting
In my own eye
Walk home to just nightmares
No angels on the phone
