"Hey Now Girl" as written by and Alexander Greenwald....
Well let me tell you I have seen
A monster age of seventeen
Who'll let you in to kick you out
And knows what love is all about

Well hey now girl
I see you walking by and long ago
You used to stop and talk
Now you just wink your eye

And I'm surprised you look all grown up
A champagne glass next to a paper cup
I stopped here just to say
Hey now girl

Her tongue in black haven't you heard
Her muttered those three dirty words
For all the foolish boys to hear
Like a siren bringing ships so near

Well hey now girl
I see you walking by and I remember
How you used to smile
How hard you used to try

It's in your eyes and I'm in a trance
A winter chill to a spring romance
I stopped here just to say
Hey now girl well hey now girl

Well hey now girl
Well hey now girl
Who let you out into this world?
Hey now girl

    Her mutter those three dirty words

    Like a siren ringing ships so near

    With reason to be repeated.

    Not much different in the lyrics, but i think that makes it easier to understand. Also it is bringing ships so near not ringing. Sirens like the greek myth not like the bell. They sing a song and sailors go towards it only to run into rocks and their boats sink.

    And Bean is right it is definitely the spring romance line instead of what it is above.

    Reference to the Death Cab song "Champagne From A Paper Cup"?

    General Commentto me, it is a girl who has a very high opinion of herself and when he says "her tongue is black havent you heard her mutter those three dirty words" she is always tellin guys "i love you" when she never really has known love she is just an dumb girl who thinks she can play around with it
