about

One of the original Grownups songs recorded in the late 1980s - remastered in 2011.

lyrics

Well, she’s my grubby little angel
In her white shirt and those faded, faded jeans

There is music in her movements
Her eyes dart around the truth, or that’s how it seems

She can pick me up in one hand
Or put me down with one word

She’s uncut and unpolished, she’s uncontrollable
She’s everything you’ve heard

Then she sets me on fire x lots of times

Even dressed in black she looks like an angel
Standing in the doorway of her own Heartbreak Hotel

If I am superman then she is kryptonite
If she is Tarzan I guess that makes me Jane

She warns that it’s a cruel world
It’s a cruel, cruel world that’s about to get cruel to you

When she tells you life is hard
Something tells you that it’s true

Then she sets me on fire x 100 times

She warns that it’s a cruel world
It’s a cruel, cruel world that’s about to get cruel to you

When she tells you life is hard
Something tells you that it’s true

Then she sets me on fire x 1000000000
