Story

I got the inspiration for this song from a woman I saw hanging around an open mic in a dark bar on Parliament street. I like to think that I am "the young thing in the corner that makes their tongues unfurl," however I can often relate to the Used To Be Girl. :-(

Lyrics

Used to be Girl I used to be a looker said the girl at the bar In my younger days I could have been a star Wasn't I a beauty all decked out in curls Now I'm just a used to be girl The boys down here they like me They always make me smile I go to their apartments every once in a while But that young thing in the corner Makes their tongues unfurl And I remember I'm a used to be girl There's a picture in the paper of a prom queen and she smiles She knows she's got the world by the balls I cashed in all my pretty and all that I got Was a lousy ex-husband and this here hot spot Hello there good-looking I aint seen you here before The dance floor it is shaking and there's room here for one more So if you will forgive me for not shining like a pearl I think I might be willing to give this thing a whirl And I could be a used to be a used to be girl
