"She Didn't Know" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
Born a queen up on her side, and she felt it too.
There's a lot you can see when there's nothing to do
She got down on her knees and she dug herself out
Slipping to the east side and prancing about.

Learn a language baby, it's that kind of place
Low card is hunger and high card is taste
And trouble is small change when daddy's around
You know that she learned a lesson when she happened down

She didn't know-the barrel was loaded
She didn't know-the barrel was loaded
She didn't know-the barrel was loaded
She didn't know

One eye on the table, one eye on the floor
She got beat for her pride with her back to the door
She be digging the spotlight and called it her own
But you know it's over when everyone's gone

Stealing seconds together, the day is the night
You can fly your own colors as long as they're right
The trigger invites you and so do the boys
But if there ain't no one listening there ain't no noise

    General CommentI cant believe nobody has posted anything about this song yet... its a gooder. I play guitar and i definately like to play The Hip's stuff, its fun and especially catchy. To me, this song is about a rich girl (or a girl of higher social class) going to hang out in the "wrong neighbourhood" (sorry for stereotypes) and doesnt realize the different walks of life... or i could be completely wrong.

    General CommentIt is about a rich girl who marries an abuser who she shoots out of self defence. "if there ain't no one listening there ain't no noise".
