The days of wine and roses
Were a long time ago
The proms, teenage cruisin'
And the picture show

You tried so hard
To fix your outsides
Until you realized that I took
Everything dear inside

Give me your heart
Give me your soul
I'll take you when you're young
The devil in miss jones

Your daddy had a funny way
Of showing you his love
It's a shame you've hid well
From the lord up above
There's something inside
That burns like a fire
And you realize you've been blessed
With a wild desire


Your parochial background
Vanished in the wind
Perhaps a ographic future
And a million dollar friend
You tried so hard to always be the one
You're loved by all men, but respected by none


I'll take you when you're young
And I'll leave you when you're old

    General CommentIn 1973 there was a famous porno movie by the same name. I don't know if this song is inspired by it. according to the plot of that movie was:
    Justine Jones, a spinsterish woman, commits suicide and ends up in hell, where the Devil himself offers her an opportunity to live her life over again; this time as a sexually adventurous, insatiable libertine.

    General Commenti belive this song is about a daughter being raped at a young age and being so fucked up when she gets older she goes on a downward spiral.
