Look Away

Naughty Little Doggie

I slept wlth sable when she was 13
Her parents were too rich to do anything
She rocked her way around l.a
'til a new york doll carried her away

Look away look away

Now he was blond & she was dark
They called him thunder 'cause he had the spark
The dream he dreamed was straight & pure
But the confusion of life was gonna get him for sure

Look away look away

They shared their clothes & their cowboy boots
Left them all over the floor while they dyed their roots
They live the dreann & they went non-stop
They did' ok 'til the band broke up

Look away look away look away look away

Unfortunately the needle broke
Their rock & roll love like a bicycle spoke
I found her in a back street with her looks half gone
She was sellin something that i was on

Look away look away

Now thunder & me did not part friends
What we did once i wouldn't do again
So he stayed with the pure dream & followed the moon
'til the drugs in his body made his mind a cartoon

Look away look away

So a few years later thunder died broke
Sable had a baby back at her folks
Me i went straight & serious too
There wasn't much else that i could do

Look away look away

So now that i'm straight i'm settled too
I eat & i slesp & i work like you
I got lots of feelings but i hold them down
That's a way i cope with this shitty town

Look away look away
Look away look away
