Tattooed Girl

Lyrics: Fred Tackett
Music: Fred Tackett

One of the new songs on Little Feat's album Rooster Rag.

In the summer when it rains in the afternoon
Heat running sweet from the earth to the moon
Nobodyís gonna tell you what you gotta do
In the Summer when it rains in the afternoon

Youíre a tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
A tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
A tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
Try to make it lighter
Keeps on getting older

At a certain time of day when gravity is light
Still seems like things could work out right
The hot dusty past is long left behind
At a certain time of day when gravity is light

Youíre a tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
A tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
A tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
Try to make it lighter
Keeps on getting older

When the night time comes and babyís got the blues
Refrigeratorís leaking, dog ate the shoe
Thereís a party up the street but the party ainít for you
When the night time comes and babyís got the blues

Youíre a tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
A tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
A tattooed girl with the world on her shoulders
Try to make it lighter
Keeps on getting older
