She's gonna hand you a red headed Gabriel
Coming from the bar in a plastic tie
He's gonna swing from the Tree of Life
He's gonna try to sell you on a great big lie

But when you speak to her
Her eyes light up
The music spills right into your cup
The minstrels play and the waitress brings ice

There are pies on a carousel
Have a slice
But watch out
She ain't no good for you

He's gonna spin like the tractor pull
She'll sit back when he tells his tale
He's gonna yell when he drinks his beer
She'll sit back and drink ginger ale

But when you speak to her
Her eyes light up
The music spills right into your cup
It's so abrupt and it's so concise

There are pies on a carousel
Have a slice
But watch out
She ain't no good for you

I say watch out
She ain't no good for you
She'd like to put you in her zoo
Right between the canaries and the cockatoos

She'll pull out your feathers
For her brand new hat
And when she's done that
She'll feed you to her cat

So watch out
She ain't no good for you
Watch out
She ain't no good for you

Watch out
She ain't no good for you

    General CommentI love the descriptions in this song!
    "The music spills right into your cup"
    =D
    Anyway, this song doesn't appear to be the most complicated in the world, but here's my take on it anyway:

    Guy and girl at a nice restraunt. Guy isn't all that likable, girl doesn't seem interested in him, but they might be involved. But when you (presumably you is a male) talk to the girl, she's suddenly very interested, and much happier talking to you than to the guy. She's tempting you, and it seems as if she'd like to dump this guy for you, but "Watch out, she ain't no good for you".

    So basically, my take on it is that it's about someone interested in a girl who's going out with someone else, but is obviously interested in the other guy. The girl is trouble, though, and only wants to use him and lose him, so to speak.

    Maybe I'm way off here, but nobody else has said anything, so I thought I'd give it a shot. ;)
