Oh, Beauty was a tiger
And she blew her daddy's money
She'll take you to the river
But she don't know how to swim

There's more to her than madness
She'll always keep you guessin'
And she'll take you for a ride
But she don't know who or when

'Cause nobody waits
I'm feelin' the same
She's got a new edge, yeah
She's got a new name
She had nothin' to hide
She couldn't be more
She's just a private school kid
School kid, whore

Now, Beauty was a stranger
She don't know rhyme or reason
She's helpin' our destruction
So you'd better treat her right

She's totally addicted
She can't see what she's doin'
She's always had pretensions
So you'd better treat her right

'Cause nobody waits
I'm feelin' the same
She's got a new edge, yeah
She's got a new name
She had nothin' to hide
She couldn't be more
She's just a private school kid

She's lookin' for strife
You're goin' insane
She's draggin' it down, yeah
The family name
She had nothin' to hide
She couldn't be more
She's just a private school kid
School kid, whore

'Cause nobody waits
I'm feelin' the same
She's got a new edge, yeah
She's got a new name
She's got time on her side
She couldn't be more
She's just a private school kid

She's lookin' for strife
You're goin' insane
She's draggin' it down, yeah
The family name
She's got time on her side
She couldn't be more
She's just a private school kid
School kid, whore

    General Commentomg i cant believe no one else has commented this song!

    this has got to be one of the greatest songs of all time, Sarah McLeod's voice is just so brilliant and amaaazing and husky and sexy! Lovveee it.
    Every single song by Sarah McLeod is the best.

    as for what this song means - just a girl who goes/went to a private school and wants to rebel, or has rebelled.
    I think its about Sarah because shes from the city i live in, (adelaide, south australia) and she went to one of the poshest private schools, her dads really rich. and the whole thing of her cutting all her hair and becoming a rock chick could be the rebellion bit.
    or she could be a drug addict haha.
