"Hey There Mrs. Lovely" as written by and Ryan Adams....
Well girl sometimes I feel just a boy
Put here on the earth for you to toy round with
I'm the plastic 3-inch armies you destroy
I'm the monster under neath your bed y'ain't afraid of yet

She let me in
And I feel all right
Yeah I feel all right

Hey there Mrs. Lovely are you coming out to play
I've been stranded on your door step every night and day
And I want you so bad but when you cry I get scared
Wanna dry your eyes with cinnamon and pears

You used to only want your two front teeth
But Christmas time it came it went, you ended up with me
And we started playing Twister with our tongues
We probably should have scrapped the game and gave ourselves some hugs

And I toy with you
And you toy with me
Can you stop this shit please?

Hey there Mrs. Lovely are you coming out to play
I've been stranded on your door step every night and day
And I want you so bad but when you cry I get scared
Wanna dry your eyes with cinnamon and pears
And pears
And pills
And pills

    General Commentno one has posted on this AMAZING song? the lyrics are kind of stupid... "And we started playing Twister with our tongues / We probably should have scrapped the game and gave ourselves some hugs" well.. actually they're pretty good until that point... haha... i love the chord progression at the beginning though... it's possibly my favorite ryan song. i guess i'm kinda glad he isn't producing (or recording or whatever) this one... it's so cool... and i don't wanna share it... ha. plus i love my live version and i'm afraid he might screw it up if he recorded it in a studio... haha... but yeah... awesome song... question, what does "Wanna dry your eyes with cinnamon and pears" mean? i understand he wants to make her all better... but is there a significance of cinnamon and pears?

    General CommentThis is on Easy Tiger as "These Girls." Different lyrics and faster. I like both versions.

    General CommentI agree that this song is one of his best, but not wanting to share the song with other is directly foolish. Why do you deserve to enjoy this song so much yet feel its in your best interest to not share. GREAT ATTITUDE! I now understand why terrorist think the way they do about America, people like pomegranatesROCK validate the terrorist thought process. Cheers to being an asshole.
