She was that kind of lady
Times were hard
But she could come curling 'round you
Like fingers

But she'll leave you
Crying in the night
She will leave you
Crying in the night
She's going to leave you
Crying in the night
She's back in town
And she's looking around

Say you needed someone to depend on
You're all alone
She's the only one
Who can come take you far away
Take your breath away

Come on baby
She's the wrong kind a' girl
She's a come-on lady
She's a tarnished pearl
She'll take your money
She'll wreck your world
Wreck your world
She's a come-on baby
Come-on girl.
A "come-on" girl
Come on ... girl
She's back
And she's looking around
And she's looking around
And she's looking around

    General CommentOkay, this one's a little obvious. Basically a very "outgoing" lady goes around looking for weak dependant males to dominate, and most of them end up falling in love with her. I like the reference to a tarnished pearl, as in she's of no value to the guys, but they keep her around for their own sentimental value.

    The part where she says "and she's looking around" could be taken two ways in my opinion: the first is a threat to men, to watch out for her relentlessness....but the second could be that she's looking around because in the end, everyone will move on, and because she treated all of these men so badly, she will be left with no one to love her.
