Ugly Faces

from by Ruth Theodore

lyrics

she turns the washing machine on and the whole house shakes
she says “i’ll be so happy when that bloody thing breaks
there’s always something wrong with this place”
she’s not a bad girl cause bad girls fight and
she gets frightened but she’s easily lead
so i watch where i
tread

cause ‘I’ve seen flowers come in stoney places
and kind things done by men with ugly faces’

but oh she says
“if you know what i know you know too much
i know you lean on your words like i lean on my crutch
and you’ll never know when enough is enough
so i’d give up
but i see you’re walking faster than me
and its due to the fact that you use both feet
But you’re touchy today
so i’ll watch what i say”

‘i’ve seen flowers come in stoney places
and kind things done by men with ugly faces’

she’s not a bad girl cause bad girls fight and
she gets frightened but she’s easily lead
so i watch where i
tread
