Oh fair Doreen the night has seen
You ply your trade so sweet
And though they come your soul to stun
No anvil shall you be

No anvil shall you be Doreen
No anvil shall you be
Although they come your soul to stun
No anvil shall you be

Oh fair Doreen your treacled lips
That taste of other worlds
Though they may claim your soul be stained
Thou art not Satan's girl

Thou art not Satan's girl Doreen
Thou art not Satan's girl
Though they may claim your soul be stained
Thou art not Satan's girl

    General CommentI get the impression that it's about a prostitute? Just because of the first couple of lines really.
    I think the singer is basically saying although everyone reckons this girl is immoral and evil or whatevs she's actually an innocent person. Maybe she's just lost her way or come into trouble somehow? But she'll be forgiven.
