The door swings back and in comes the breeze
cold as ice with a Tambourine
words cocked back like a shotgun
but she don't need to use them
ain't here for your fun, and I said...

You need some help coming off the street?
didn't even break a stride
eyes like a do or die
and I tried and I tried and
to look away
I tried and I tried and
but I can't just seem to
look away.

She took the stage
sharpened eyes
a purple leg from the tambourine at her side
drag from a cigarette
had the room like a magnet
thousands of people could be watching her
but she don't bat an eye
and she smiled with a wink and
took my guitar and
told me to not get
In the way, look out!

She rips the room
the tables fly
they can't believe
believe their eyes

Don't get in the way of the Girl with the Tambourine.
