"A Girl In Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)" as written by and Peter Woods Debora Iyall....
She's got a face that shows that she knows she's heard every line
Tenderly she talks on the phone
There's a way to walk that says "stay away"
And a time to go around the long way

A girl in trouble is a temporary thing
(temporary, temporary, temporary, temporary)
A girl in trouble is a temporary thing
(temporary, temporary, temporary, temporary)

There's a time when every girl learns
To use her head
Tears will be saved
Till they're better spent
There's no time for her to be afraid
So instead
She takes care of business
Keeps a cool head

A girl in trouble is a temporary thing
(temporary, temporary, temporary, temporary)
A girl in trouble is a temporary thing
(temporary, temporary, temporary, temporary)

She's got a face that shows that she knows she's heard every line
Tenderly she talks on the phone
There's a way to walk that says "stay away"
And a time to go around the long way

A girl in trouble is a temporary thing
(temporary, temporary, temporary, temporary)
A girl in trouble is a temporary thing
(temporary, temporary, temporary, temporary)
A girl in trouble is a temporary thing

    General Comment"A girl in trouble" is an outdated euphemism for an unwed woman that is pregnant. Pregnancy lasts nine months, of course, so it's not forever. Here the singer is describing an unwed pregnant mother who has decided to stop feeling the shame society is imposing on her (at the time this was released, there was a stigma to being an unwed mother that is greater than it is now.) and get on with her life.
