Daisy

I’m looking out an old Roman window at the crowd on the street
I’ve got an uneasy feeling ‘bout the woman that I’m fixing to meet
She’s sinister but fetching, flirtatious but cold
By her own estimation: worth her weight in gold
Daisy – I should have kept my hands to myself

When you walked into the room I caught the strong fragrance of neglect
Well you can try to hide your lies, but you can’t disguise the lives that you’ve wrecked
My good sense scatters like Vesuvius blows
When you look down that exorbitant curve of your nose
Daisy – I should have kept my hands to myself

I walked up the Spanish Steps to a dark alley near your flat
And you promptly waived me off with a too emphatic flourish of your hat
You’ve got one already, another waiting to get in
I think there’s something you might want to wipe off your chin
Daisy – I should have kept my hands to myself

I’m gonna terminate this lame business, quit this shabby affair
You can wave goodbye as I haul away my derriere
My bag is packed, I’m off to the station
You’re like reading a good book in a bad translation
Daisy – I should have kept my hands to myself
