To hell with boys creepin' up slowly
Swingin' them shovels 'round
Diggin' up words of pleasure
From evil hollow ground
Oh an' here's one now girl
The devil is in his eye
You'd better start stirring up soil boy
Or hear e'are you'll lye
Whispered to you in the dark
And I think you heard me say
Let's say goodbye like we said hello
In a friendly kind of way
Ye charlie's neat an' charlie's keen but
David he's a dandy
David he's a nice young man
He feeds the girls on candy
Whispered to you in the dark
And all that sordid gain
Let's say goodbye like we said hello
In a friendly kinda way
Now what I done's my damage
An' what you do is your'n
Y'all got nothin' on me
But I'll take that there
Crown of scorn

    General CommentThe song appears to be of an ex-girlfriend of a man who is now in a dangerous relationship with two other men telling her things she wants to hear and both are keen and smooth, but they are lying and have dark secrets such as the one david being a drug addict because he feeds the girls on candy. which either means he sells drugs to support his family or he uses drugs to seduce and take advantage of his victims who he swindles with big talk.

    The ex boyfriend whispers to her from in the dark, which means she turned away from him and now whatever he says is mostly meaningless to her, but he is trying to warn her of the dangers she is walking into the relationship with Charlie and David.

    And what he did to make her turn away from him was his damage and he can accept that, but what she is now doing will harm her even more and while she may hate him for telling her this, he will accept that scorn from her.
