lyrics

Silly shoes and done up hair
I was just a girl you thought was fair
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh

But you would learn, you would see
I ain't the girl you thought i'd be
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh

And you could spin me round and say
You wish I'd go away

Calico dress and silver ring
Will outlive and outlast me
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh


The good lord gave his only son
Left Mary there to weep and mourn
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh

And Death will take just what he wants
Like a foolish man with a broken heart
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh

And you could spin me round and say
You wish I'd go away

Holes don't dig themselves you see
But the dirt and the earth seemed to welcome me
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh


And you could spin me round and say
You wish I'd go away

Ragdolls and promises
Now who's that girl in the river bed
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh
Hey hey, what do you say say, uh huh

Each tune represents an aching, a longing, and the snapshot the record offers into the musical soul of Jen Starsinic is startling; this young woman is most certainly a rising voice in contemporary Americana. ... more
