Song & Lyrics
-------------

1st Verse
---------

Riff 01
Taylor was a good girl

never one to be late
                                    Riff 01
complain express ideas in her brain
Riff 01
Workin on the night shift

passin out the tickets

you're gonna have to pay her 
                          Riff 01
if you want to park here.
Riff 01
Well mommy's little dancer's

quite a little secret

workin on the streets now
                    Riff 01
never gonna keep it.
Riff 01
It's quite an imposition

And now she's only wishin'

That she would have listened
                       Riff 01
To the words they said.

Poor Taylor.


Chorus
-------

Riff 01
Well she just wonders around

uneffected by
Riff 01
the winter winds, yeah

and she'll pretend that
Riff 01
well she's somewhere else

so far and clear
Riff 01                  Am
about 2,000 miles from here.


2nd Verse
---------
Peter Patrick pitter patters on the window
And Sunny's silhouette won't let him in
and poor old Pete's got nothin 'cause he's been fallin'
but somehow Sunny knows just where he's been
He thinks that singin' on a Sunday's gunna save his soul
but now that Saturday's gone
Well somehow he thinks that he's on his way
but I can see, that his break lights are on

Chorus
------

And he just wonders around
uneffected by
the winter winds, yeah
and he'll pretend that
well he's somewhere else
so far and clear
about 2,000 miles from here.

3rd Verse
---------

She's such a tough enchilada
filled up with nada
givin' what she got to give to get dollar bills
she used to be a limber chick
time's a been tickin'
now she's finger lickin to the man
with the money in his pockets
flyin in his rocket
                                       Riff 02
only stoppin by on his way to a better world
                         Riff 02
if Taylor finds a better world
                     Intro
Taylor's gunna run away


The song ends with the intro.
