Straight As A Die

Noel Brazil
She roots out her best earrings with a comb The ones that go with her rowdy red hair Weaves her way between the plastic and the bones Leaves all her empty evenings hanging in the air And he don't mind that she's a short-tempered girl He don't mind that she may soon say goodbye He don't mind 'cause she's got something he loves She's as straight as a die She sees the men out changing the state Knows they stoop through her eyes are half drowned Hears the steeple say it's a quarter past eight Moves on in a hurry well she's a long way from town He don't mind that she's a short-tempered girl He don't mind that she may soon make him cry He don't mind 'cause she's got something he loves She's as straight as a die We won't get away from this either No matter how hard we try The truth is there to catch us The truth is going to save our lives He's in a thrill of anticipation So glad he bought something small To give her for a gift He feels kind of silly In case she thinks he's having her on All he meant was She's got a friend she can kiss And he don't mind that she's a short-tempered girl He don't mind that she soon has to fly He don't mind 'cause she's got something he loves She's as straight as a die
