She was made to pour you away
She don't care what any man say
You can watch her strut
But keep your mouth shut
Or it's rumination day

Well now she's long, long gone
Oh now she's long, yea now she's long gone
Like Moses through the corn

Well her eyes, they're rubies and pearls
And she's not made like those other girls
Well her lashes flap
And they smack me back
Like springs bouncing off of a curls

Oh now she's long, long gone
Now, she's long, long gone
Like Moses through the corn

Rock on

    General CommentI know this site's about the lyrics, but man, the riff in this song is a straight up taken from Muddy Waters' "She's Alright" off his 'Electric Mud' album.

    The Keys' song is kickass, but basically a cover, and not even electrified or anything, cos the MW original is already electric, distorted, and with thudding drums.

    Lyric CorrectionAlso, it's "ruination day," and "they smack men back, like springs bouncing off of her curls." Amazing song.

    Lyric CorrectionThe correct lyrics, off the CD:
    She was made to blow you away
    She don't care what any man say
    You can watch her strut
    But keep your mouth shut
    Or it's a ruination day

    She's long, long gone
    She's long gone like Moses through the corn

    Her eyes are rubies and pearls
    And she's not made like those other girls
    Her lashes flap and they smack men back
    Like springs they bounce off her curls

    General CommentI think this song is about flappers in the roaring twenties. This woman, was "made to blow you away" and also, didn't care at all what "any man say", the line "her lashes flap, and they snap men back" is also a very accurate description of flappers with their outrageous makeup. This type of women, elegant and glamorous, is really "long gone". Also, "her eyes are made of rubies and pearls" is referring to all the jewellery they wore. Oh, and the "curls" hairstyle was a popular one in the '20's. This song is absolutely fantastic!!
