Emmaline's a rose that grew out of the dark
tan as a mexican and a tongue like a spark
she cut her hair short to look like a boy
she said "I'll call you by my name,
you can call me by yours."

A penniless tripper
eyes stuck to the ground
Always selling her love
til she fell in love with me
now she sells her love to me

Take your time
Emmaline

We hitchhiked to the Siskiyou's
and dropped acid on our tongues
We ain't seen the devil,
we ain't hurt no one
She shook like the leaves
and whispered Portuguese slang
like "everyone's just sleeping
and everyone's the same
Stones in the creek
Whores in the street
Always selling their love"

Then she fell in love with me
now she sells her love to me

Take your time
Emmaline
