D

Well I'd rather see you dead little girl

Bm

Than to be with another man

D

You better keep your head little girl

Bm

Or you won't know where I am

 

[chorus] E

You better run for your life if you can little girl

Bm E

Hide your head in the sand little girl

Bm G

Catch you with another man

That's the end little girl.
